197 pp, 10" H. J.R.R. Tolkien, the "man who was embarrassed by success lived most of his life as an Oxford scholar in the surrounds of a cloistered academic community. As a child in South Africa, (he) was kidnapped by a native and taken into the bush. As a youngster in the English industrial city of Birmingham, Tolkien was raised by a Catholic priest. As a young adult, (he) lived throught the bloody horror of the trenches of World War I. How much of Tolkien's own personal experience fired that incredible imagination is just one of the areas that Daniel Grotta uncovers. Here, for the first time, the door is opened to the life and thoughts of the masterful creator of Middle-earth." Minor wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, one very small corner bump, slight fading to color on front board and at top/bottom edges, small remainder mark on bottom of text block.
