Tolkein by Devin Brown

In his biography, Tolkien, Devin Brown tells the story of how J. R. R. Tolkien went from being an obscure Oxford philologist to being one of the best-known writers in the history of literature. Weaving in the major aspects of the author's life, career, and faith, Brown traces the amazing odyssey of how The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings came to be written and published.
