Sir Philip Pullman, holder of the Order of the British Empire and a member of the Royal Literary Society, is an English novelist born in 1946 into a Royal Air Force pilot family. The family moved frequently, and as a child Philip Pullman had to travel extensively around the world. He spent part of his childhood, in particular, in Southern Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe), where he spent some time in school. In 1953, when Pullman was seven, his father died in a plane crash. Pullman's mother remarried and the family moved to Australia, and from the age of 11 he lived in North Wales with his grandfather, who was a priest. After graduating from school, Philip Pullman studied at Oxford, Exeter College, where he studied English philology.
