Listen to part 1 of a radio interview with Philip Pullman

If you like Philip Pullman’s books (His Dark Materials Trilogy (The Golden Compass; The Subtle Knife; The Amber Spyglass), I Was a Rat!), you’ll be interested in this radio interview with him that aired last night on CBC Radio’s Writers & Company. The interview was Part 1 of 2, conducted by Eleanor Wachtel when Pullman was in Toronto for the Particles of Narrative conference.

Pullman talked about his childhood, his love of writing, Greek myth, religion, The Golden Compass, and more. You also get to hear an excerpt from the upcoming movie based on his book The Golden Compass (which is being adapted at the cost of a $150 million), and an excerpt of The Golden Compass read by Pullman–an excerpt with a cliffhanger that will make you want to read the book, if you haven’t already, or re-read it.

You can download the interview here, if you want to listen to it or have a copy. Archives are only kept online for four weeks, so you’ll want to get your copy now. You can also download it here, where they keep a few more back issues in the archives.
