Daemon Voices -- Philip Pullman

Staff Pick

From the master storyteller of His Dark Materials trilogy, comes a collection of essays and lectures on the art and power of storytelling. Pullman shares personal theories, curiosities and passions on themes ranging from the practice of writing to the connections between science and stories. I found the “topic finder” at the beginning of the book to be extremely helpful. Read freely. The more exploratory you are, the more you tend to gain from Pullman’s wisdom, as he aptly says by borrowing from Muhammad Ali’s famous quote, “read like a butterfly, write like a bee.” Start fluttering about!
