Philip Pullman

Philip Pullman is a British author. On Five Books, his book about Jesus has come in for special attention, but he is the best known for His Dark Materials trilogy,  an epic written for young adults and also highly recommended on our site. In 2018, Pullman published the first book in another trilogy, a prequel (and sequel) to His Dark Materials, called The Book of Dust. So far two books in that trilogy have been published, La Belle Sauvage, which takes place when Lyra, the heroine, is a baby, and The Secret Commonwealth, which is set during Lyra’s student days at Oxford.
