An interview with Phillip Pullman in the New York Times

This interview piece in the Times is excellent. I’m a huge fan of the Golden Compass/Northern Lights series and I was happy to find that Pullman himself seems like someone who’d be fun to get a cup of tea with.

But most of all, I realized this is very much how I hope to look when I’m 70. The wiry hair, the red sneakers, the rooms piled with books — I’ll take all of it, thanks.
