C.S. Lewis – Narnia and TWHF

On February 28, 1957, Lewis writes to Deborah Fraser:

I am so glad you like my Narnian stories, and it was nice of you to write and tell me. I don’t feel I can do any more of them. After all there are seven of them and they cover the history of Narnia from its creation to the end!

Thank your father very much for his nice article. Tell him I am extra-specially glad he likes Till We Have Faces, because it is so far the most unpopular of my books. We have a hamster and a white rat and there’s a little wood full of owls in our garden.

I thought I’d post this letter because it illustrates a comment I made on a recent post about TWHF – note that Lewis uses the word “unpopular”.
