Description
A true miscellany on the man behind Middle-earth and his remarkably detailed world of Hobbits and Elves, this delightful little tome reveals many surprising dimensions to J.R.R. Tolkien. What, for example, is the connection between Tolkien and the codebreakers of Bletchley Park? Did Tolkien somehow predict the great storm of 1987? And to which character in The Lord of the Rings did Tolkien compare himself? Colin Duriez—author of J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis: The Story of Their Friendship and Tolkien and The Lord of the Rings, as well as a frequent Tolkien commentator—takes us to the places and sources that informed Tolkien's world.
