Waiting for Lyra: In the Meantime

Like countless others I’m eagerly waiting to see one of my favorite literary heroines, Lyra Belacqua, in her December film debut and in the still-being-written The Book of Dust. In the meantime I continue to enjoy the thought-provoking comments of her creator, Philip Pullman. The most recent ones are in a just-published interview by Claudia Fitzherbert in the Literary Review. William Blake, James M. Cain, Iraq, fan fiction, Dakota Blue Richards, agnostism, and lots more. Wonderful stuff as always.
