While C.S. (Jack) Lewis’s friendships with the Inklings is well-known and celebrated, his friendship with Dorothy L. Sayers has not been as widely recognized. Gina Dalfonzo’s Dorothy and Jack captures the endearing friendship between these two great literary figures. The book effectively showcases their differences and similarities, which ends up in a well-balanced friendship through which we can peer into.
Dorothy and Jack’s differences may have been the most evident: their genders, their personalities and their individual perspectives. But a most interesting and solid friendship emerges as Dorothy and Jack share much in common. They both possess literary talent, strong convictions and a gift for combining the intellect with the imagination. They also had to navigate their Christian faith in public, as they were often sought out as authority figures on religious matters.
