His Dark Materials: interview with Philip Pullman

In this fascinating interview, Philip Pullman talks about His Dark Materials and some of the ideas in the books, including: loss of innocence, religion, William Blake, the oral tradition and why fairy tales differ from novels, plus a little dig at CS Lewis and Tolkien.

Recorded at the Durham Book Festival in October this year. Enjoy!
