A Conversation with Deborah Harkness

How did you become interested in the intersection of alchemy, magic, and science? Historically, what do you see as the relationship between science and religion or mysticism?

In college, I had a wonderful professor who taught a class on these subjects. To kick off the class, he asked us, 'How do you know what you think you know?' I've spent the last quarter century trying to answer that question. Because the world is a mysterious place and our relationship to it is not always clear, people have often turned to science, faith, and magic for answers. They help people find responses to the questions of, who am I and why am I here?

Diana is an appealing heroine, determined, accomplished, and yet aware of her own weaknesses. In what ways, if any, does Diana reflect your own experience or personality?

There are some similarities - Diana is also a historian of science, also interested in the history of alchemy, and shares some of my passions (including television cooking programs, tea, and rowing). Really, all the characters have some element of me in them. I think that's how authors create imaginary people who nevertheless feel real. The rest of Diana's character comes from a combination of qualities I admire in others, wish fulfilment, and my completion of the following statement: 'Wouldn't it be great if a heroine in a book was . . .

  • Couldn’t put it down

    By Jazzy10/10
    Have now read this trilogy twice and couldn’t put it down on both occassions
  • All souls trilogy

    By shorttstuff1
    Very very good, throughly enjoyed!
  • A nice read

    By Easy reading
    The books work well together and offer a good story based in well known universities/locations. An easy read, that has entangled the authors own characters or creatures within the real world. If you’re into historical fantasy this is a good book.
  • Couldn't put it down!

    By Kaybrough
    These are the best written books that I have read about vampires et al. An excellent story arc interspersed with fascinating historical snippets. As I approached the end of the third book, I couldn't bear to put it down as I was so immersed in the story and characters by then. I don't think that it will be too long before I feel the need to read the trilogy again!
  • Unputdownable

    By LozzaC14
    LOVE this trilogy. Far better than the tv show. The books are rich in detail if a little Twilighty in parts but the historical elements make up for it. I was up until 2am some nights reading these books
  • Enchanting & mesmerising

    By S.em.tea
    After watching a few episodes of A Discovery of Witches, I couldn’t wait any longer and had to know the rest of the story. I was not disappointed... Rich in history, detail and characters the three books are all equally fantastic. Following Matthew and Diana on their journey fraught with passion, excitement and danger. You will wish there were more hours in the day just to get a further glimpse in to this magical story. A must read, you won’t regret it.
  • Renewed my faith
