Profile of Philip Pullman on Arena

There’s much excitement about the publication tomorrow of the next novel in Philip Pullman‘s His Dark Materials saga – titled The Book of Dust: La Belle Sauvage.

This evening I appeared on RTÉ Radio 1 arts show, Arena, and discussed Pullman’s work for those unfamiliar with the stories, and those who are keen to get the first big instalment in Lyra’s adventures for seventeen years.

You can listen back to my discussion with Arena host Sean Rocks online.

After all the prep I did for the show my memories of enjoying the first series were revistalised, and now I’m eagerly anticipating returning to Pullman’s marvellous universes.
