Terry Pratchett in his own words, providing an insight behind the scenes of Discworld and into the mind of the man in the hat. A collection of non-fiction with a moving foreword by friend and fellow fantasy author Neil Gaiman.
Terry Pratchett earned a place in the hearts of readers the world over with his bestselling Discworld series – but in recent years he became equally well-known as an outspoken campaigner for causes including Alzheimer’s research and animal rights. A Slip of the Keyboard brings together the best of Pratchett’s non fiction writing on his life, on his work, and on the weirdness of the world: from Granny Pratchett to Gandalf’s love life; from banana daiquiris to books and characters that inspired him; from getting started as a writer to the injustices that he fought to end. With his trademark humour, humanity and unforgettable way with words, this collection offers an exhibition of the life behind the scenes of Discworld of a much loved and much missed figure – man and boy, bibliophile, literary genius, honorary Brownie, computer geek, wearer of hats, and champion of orangutans and the right to a good death.
