Synopsis

Pullman’s award-winning trilogy His Dark Materials has been appreciated by readers of all ages. It is now set to welcome new fans as it is adapted for television by the BBC in 2019, and the first part of his new trilogy, The Book of Dust, sees publication.

Nicholas Tucker, a leading authority on children’s literature, writes about the man he knows as a friend.

Unpacking and examining Pullman’s life and the sources he drew on for his masterpiece, he explores the world of science, theology, imagination and adventure that Pullman has created.

Including a personal interview with Pullman himself, Darkness Visible offers a unique exploration of the author’s work - and its controversies.
