“Lost: a green leather pen case, containing a Montblanc ballpoint pen and an ordinary pencil,” Pullman wrote.
“I’m particularly attached to the pen, because I wrote His Dark Materials with it. If anyone finds it, I’d appreciate a tweet.”
Lost: a green leather pen case, containing a Montblanc ballpoint pen and an ordinary pencil. I'm particularly attached to the pen, because I wrote His Dark Materials with it. If anyone finds it, I'd appreciate a tweet.
The tweet, which at the time of writing has been retweeted over 4,000 times, has garnered the attention of fans — many of whom are offering to lend the author their own pens.
I too have a beautiful Montblanc Pen – a precious, unopened graduation gift, with which I have never achieved what you have. Should you need one, you are welcome to loan/have/share/do whatever you need to do…
The His Dark Materials trilogy forms the basis of the BBC’s upcoming TV adaptation, starring James McCoy, Ruth Wilson and 13-year-old Dafne Keen, who’s set to play Lyra, a gutsy heroine with a talent for lying.
Fingers crossed Pullman finds his pen! If only he had an alethiometer going spare…
