In addition to these interviews for those of you who would like to consider more biographical information on Lewis you may want to click on the following hotlink to watch and consider what => Walter Hooper has to add. Hooper devoted himself to Lewis’s memory and became the primary advisor to his literary estate after his death on November 22nd 1963. Hooper’s book, => C.S.

. . . –> Gresham’s mother died of cancer in 1960, and Lewis continued to raise Douglas and his elder brother David. (Lewis had adopted the boys when he married, and The Horse and His Boy is dedicated to them both). At Lewis’ death in 1963, his estate went to his brother Major Warren Hamilton Lewis, a renowned scholar of French history. The Major in turn passed the estate to Douglas and David ten years later. Douglas Gresham acknowledged in a 15 November 2005 interview on NPR that he and his brother are estranged, although in a 4 December 2005 interview he did say that they are in email contact. Douglas Gresham is a Christian, as were Lewis and his mother, while David returned to the Orthodox Judaism of their mother’s family while still a child in Lewis’s home. Lewis made an effort to find Koser food for him. (from Wikipedia)
