I was lucky to be asked to join Book Who’s Talking producer extraordinaire Josie to chat about master storyteller Philip Pullman‘s latest work, La Belle Sauvage, the first volume in the new The Book of Dust trilogy. Following on from the intelligent, subversive and wildly imaginative His Dark Materials trilogy, Pullman takes us back to his parallel Oxford and plunges readers back into church intrigues, state machinations, and the lives of the powerful and the everyday. It’s a ripper read, and Josie and I get stuck into the good, the (very little) bad, and the (not at all) ugly. No spoilers, so listen freely, and read it soon!
