Multiple award-winning author Philip Pullman's ingenious and challenging new book, The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ, is a remarkable piece of fiction that raises many questions. Pullman's acclaimed trilogy, His Dark Materials, was adapted for the National Theatre. David Eagleman's collection of fables, Sum, has already become a cult classic: 'An absolute pearl of a book...Uniquely brilliant' (Stephen Fry). Eagleman, an American neuroscientist, guides the reader through 40 inventive versions of the afterlife, all of which shed a light on our own existence. They discuss the power of elemental stories with author and playwright William Nicholson.
