From Library Journal
Despite his avowed dislike of reading fugitive journalism, Lewis contributed 19 pieces to newspapers and magazines between 1940 and 1962. His topics ranged from the oddly obtuse "On Living in an Atomic Age" (1948) to the prescient "On Sex in Literature" (1962). In this Sunday Telegraph piece he advocates an end to all "moral censorship" of literature even if "realms of filth" should result. Lewis's ability to drive swiftly to the heart of such topics as prudery, pleasure, and equality is displayed in these articles. While they add little of substance to his canon, they merit notice as masterly examples of Lewis's talent for establishing instant rapport with his readers and using it to lead them in directions they might otherwise have been reluctant to go.
