Sometimes, it seems that the more humble types “choose” to take their leave from the mortal coil under cover of the death of a more incandescent star. Like slipping out the door of a raucous party before the cops come.
Like Mother Teresa, who died in the immediate wake of the world-wide mourning of the accidental death of Princess Diana, the great novelist C.S. Lewis got out of Dodge quietly. He died November 22, 1963, a date more widely known for the assassination of a beloved American president.
Joseph Loconte pens an excellent tribute to Lewis.
