Publisher's Summary

From the internationally best-selling author of the His Dark Materials trilogy, a spellbinding journey into the secrets of his art - the narratives that have shaped his vision, his experience of writing, and the keys to mastering the art of storytelling. 

One of the most highly acclaimed and best-selling authors of our time now gives us a book that charts the history of his own enchantment with story - from his own books to those of Blake, Milton, Dickens, and the Brothers Grimm, among others - and delves into the role of story in education, religion, and science. At once personal and wide-ranging, Daemon Voices is both a revelation of the writing mind and the methods of a great contemporary master and a fascinating exploration of storytelling itself.

Critic Reviews

"A splendid collection. . . literary insights that will enrich and inspire." (The Wall Street Journal)

"Pullman can unwind certain dense topics as lyrically as a poet." (The Christian Science Monitor)

"A thoughtful collection.... Despite his declaration in an early piece that, outside of knowing 'what it feels like to write a story,' Pullman doesn't consider himself an authority on the subject, these smart, insightful, and often humorous essays make it clear that is exactly what he is." (Bustle)
