Publisher Description

This is the classic written by C. S. Lewis as a dedication to his dear friend J. R. R. Tolkien. A masterpiece of satire, The Screwtape Letters has entertained and enlightened readers the world over with its sly and ironic portrayal of human life from the vantage point of Screwtape, a highly placed assistant to "Our Father Below". At once wildly comical, deadly serious, and strikingly original, C. S. Lewis presents to us the correspondences of the worldly-wise old devil, Screwtape, to his nephew Wormwood, a novice demon in charge of securing the damnation of an ordinary young man. The Screwtape Letters is the most engaging and humorous account of temptation - and triumph over it - ever written.


This edition includes the hilarious and enlightening sequel, Screwtape Proposes a Toast, where the scene is in Hell at the annual dinner of the Tempters’ Training College for young Devils. Screwtape, who is the guest of honour, rises up to propose a toast.


‘The book is sparkling yet truly reverent, in fact a perfect joy, and should become a classic.’


- The Guardian



‘Excellent, hard-hitting, challenging, provoking.’


- The Observer

The Screwtape Letters

C.S Lewis is obviously a great writer. His wisdom and views are shown clearly in his work. Many interesting topics were raised however I didn’t agree with all he wrote . Nevertheless, it was somewhat an interesting read. Something to get you thinking and maybe a little bit for entertainment.

A Twist

A book with a twist. To see the other side. To see how they think. To see how they see. Interesting read from the legend himself.
