News: Looking for CSL-related books, movies, and plays

sehnsuchtDear Reader:

As Review Editor of Sehnsucht: The C.S. Lewis Journal, it is my privilege and responsibility to track down all the new books, movies, and theatrical productions related to C. S. Lewis: his life and his works. We desire to be comprehensive in our reviews: to comment on every new and relevant publication or adaptation that has even a tangential connection to the wider field of Lewis studies. Please leave a comment below if you know of any works that fit this description, and I will add them to my list.

Also, I am always looking for additional reviewers. If you are interested in reviewing a work, please leave a comment or contact me at iambic [dot] admonit [at] gmail [dot] com. Let me know your areas of expertise and your credentials, and I will match you up with a book, movie, or play. Many thanks.

    I don’t know how much about Karl Stern’s correspondence with Lewis will feature in Daniel Burston’s forthcoming biography, but Deborah Ostrovsky’s 25 August Tablet article, “The Freudian Became a Catholic” is very interesting!:

    This passage, quoting from Stern’s 1951 autobiography, made me think of Williams’s poem, ‘The Death of Palomides’:

    “In recalling his first Holy Communion, he writes that his spiritual identity had converged both with Christians but also with Jews. After many years of indecision, baptism made him feel closer to Jewishness.

    “ ‘And it was if others were there,’ he writes, referring to his former co-religionists, ‘my parents … the Kohen family, the Jews from the Canal Synagogue. … And there was no doubt about it—towards Him we had been running, or from Him we had been running away, but all the time He had been in the center of things.’ ”
