When she was a child, Laura Miller wanted desperately to visit Narnia -- C.S. Lewis' fantastic fictional universe in which animals talk and magic is an everyday occurrence. But when Miller re-read the "Chronicles of Narnia" series as an adult, she felt betrayed and tricked. Next time on To the Best of Our Knowledge, Laura Miller talks about returning to the Narnia stories to discover the wonder and mysteries they hold for adults. Also, we'll explore the truth behind today's pop mysticisms.
