'PEOPLE THINK THAT STORIES ARE SHAPED BY PEOPLE. IN FACT, IT'S THE OTHER WAY AROUND.'

At six years old, our friend and favourite writer of books Terry Pratchett was told by his headteacher that he would never amount to anything. He spent the rest of his life proving that teacher wrong. At sixty-six, Terry had lived a life full of achievements: becoming one of the UK's bestselling writers, winning the Carnegie Medal and being awarded a knighthood for services to literature.

After taking a walk with Death in 2015 due to a rare form of Alzheimer's disease, the mantle of completing Terry's memoir was passed to Rob Wilkins, his former assistant, close companion and now head guardian of Terry Pratchett's literary estate.

Drawing on his own extensive memories, along with those of Terry's family, friends, fans and colleagues, Rob recounts Terry's extraordinary story - from his early childhood to the literary phenomenon that his Discworld series became; and how he met and coped with the challenges that 'The Embuggerance' of Alzheimer's brought with it.

A Life with Footnotes is the book some whippersnappers in the Discworld fandom have waited a literal lifetime for; the life and times of our favourite author written indelibly on the page to be treasured for lifetimes to come.

'Of all the dead authors in the world, Terry Pratchett is the most alive.'
- John Lloyd
