Roger Lancelyn Green was born in 1918 and lived in Oxford and at his family home in Cheshire, which the Greens had owned for more than 900 years.

Lewis, creator of the The Chronicles of Narnia. Roger Lancelyn Green died in 1987.

Among the memorable cast of characters the author encounters along the way are his brutal stepfather, Mr Murdstone; bubbly Nurse Peggotty; but unworthy schoolmate Steerforth, his eccentric aunt, Betsy Trotwood, the scheming clerk Uriah Heep, the enchanting Dora and the magnificent Mr Macawber - a character much like Dickens' own father.
