Indepedent profiles Pullman
Posted on by Ian

Last Sunday’s Independent newspaper features an extensive profile of Philip Pullman by writer Cole Moreton as a preview to the DFC. The article which seems to extensively question the influence of Pullman’s father on his life and work makes for interesting reading. However, at times it appears to criticise Pullman for the actions of his father as a pilot in the Mau-Mau uprising. As one commenter on the educating alice blog remarks, journalist Moreton himself had a mixed relationship with his father and that may perhaps have influenced this piece. Whichever is the case, this is certainly worth a read. Click here to read in full.

    This is profoundly depressing, and I feel terrible for Philip Pullman.

    Quite frankly, I think what Cole Moreton did was despicable. If Philip Pullman wished to find out about his father, he would have done so on his own. If this article is correct, the author sent the information unbidden. I think the media are jerks (I would use stronger language but that is inappropriate for this site!)
