June 30, 2015

Naked Tree-More Spring (Two King Books)From my All About Jack: A C.S. Lewis Podcast page – 2015 is the 100th anniversary of the birth of Joy Davidman, C.S. Lewis’s wife. It just so happens that Dr. Don King has two new books this year (one not yet released at the time of this posting) related to her. A Naked Tree (the one currently available) is actually edited by Don and is a collection of nearly all her poems. The majority of them had never been published before. The other book (releasing in September) is Yet One More Spring and is the first comprehensive study of the poetry, nonfiction and fiction that Joy Davidman wrote. Learn more about them from the conversation that William O’Flaherty had with Don and hear a couple of Joy’s poems.

Out of My BoneFrom my All About Jack: A C.S. Lewis Podcast page – Back in 2012 I did my first interview with Dr. Don King. It was on the 2009 book entitled Out of My Bone: The Letters of Joy Davidman. This is the first time I’ve reposted the interview since I’ve had my podcast at the Podbean location. In this chat I also had Don answer some questions about his favorite Lewis book and recommendations about books by and about Lewis. Of course, he provides interesting background information about the letters of Joy Davidman and five key reasons why they are important to read.
