An insight into the man and his books
Philip Pullman's writing is full of mystery and adventure - of parallel universes, daemons and armoured bears. The His Dark Materials trilogy is set to become a major motion picture event with the release of the first film, The Golden Compass. Darkness Visible explores this epic world and the diverse creative influences of Pullman's brilliant work.
Written by acclaimed critic Nicholas Tucker, and packed with exclusive photos, illustrations and fresh material from recent interviews, this is both a celebration of Philip Pullman and an absorbing guide to all of his books.
Nicholas Tucker was a teacher and educational psychologist before lecturing in Cultural Studies at the University of Sussex. He is the author of five books about children, childhood and reading. He has also written six books for children, broadcasts frequently and reviews widely in the UK press.
