From the Back Cover
"This is an admirably balanced overview of the web of intellectual and literary interactions of the Inklings. I found myself captured by her engaging writing style, the breadth of her research, and the cogency of her argument. Her own work will itself influence the texture of Inklings scholarship for years to come. It's good, very good indeed." --Verlyn Flieger, author of Splintered Light, A Question of Time,
and Interrupted Music
"The Company They Keep is an astonishingly thorough work, lucidly and boldly illuminating the collaborative writing processes of C. S. Lewis and J. R. R. Tolkien and their colleagues during the most fruitful period of their careers. Diana Glyer's impressive achievement immediately supersedes in scope and authority all previous treatments of the Inklings in extant biographies and encyclopedia." --Bruce L Edwards, author of Not-a-Tame Lion, Further Up and Further In, and A Rhetoric of Reading
