        Bookselling in the UK

        I recently commented on bookselling in the UK, and part of my statement was extracted in Richard Brooks' article in the Sunday Times on 30th July 2017. You can read my full statement here. 


        BBC interview on Book of Dust

        I recently gave an interview to BBC Radio 4's Today Programme about the Book of Dust. Here is a link to it.

        The 1,000 causes of Brexit

        This catastrophe has had a thousand causes. Here are some.There is our country’s post-imperial reluctance to let go of the idea that we are a great nation, combined with our post-second-world-war delusion that we were still a great power.


        A moment of peace

        In 1915 pocket broadsheets of inspiring literature were distributed to the troops. One hundred years on The Guardian asked poets and writers to select the pieces they would send today. Here is one of my choices.


        My Books

        As a passionate believer in the democracy of reading, I don't think it's the task of the author of a book to tell the reader what it means.

        The meaning of a story emerges in the meeting between the words on the page and the thoughts in the reader's mind. So when people ask me what I meant by this story, or what was the message I was trying to convey in that one, I have to explain that I'm not going to explain.

        Anyway, I'm not in the message business; I'm in the "Once upon a time" business.

        New Years Honours 2019

        I was very surprised and honoured to be offered a knighthood. I believe the profession of letters should be recognised as having a proper place in the life of the nation, along with science, and sport, and music, and scholarship, and many other human activities. Many people I admire, such as Quentin Blake, Ellen MacArthur, Chris Hoy, Jacqueline Wilson, Nicholas Hytner, Jocelyn Bell Burnell, Bryn Terfel, Ray Davies, Mary Beard — far too many to list — have been happy to accept a knighthood or damehood, and I am proud to be in their company.


        The Adventures of John Blake

        Today sees the publication of my latest book The Adventures of John Blake: The Mystery of the Ghost Ship. Beautifully illustrated by Fred Fordham, the story first appeared in The Phoenix, the weekly comic published by David Fickling Books. Thanks to the artwork, as well as the fact, perhaps, that I grew up on the adventures of Dan Dare, it has a wonderfully nostalgic feel.


        Extract from chapter ten of La Belle Sauvage

        Eleven-year-old Malcolm lives with his parents at the Trout Inn near Oxford, across the river Thames from Godstow Priory, where the nuns are looking after a special guest. One night his father comes to Malcolm’s bedroom.
