A Life with Footnotes is the ultimate story of the life and times of our founder and favourite author. Drawing on his own extensive memories, along with those of Terry’s family, friends, fans and colleagues, Rob Wilkins recounts Terry’s extraordinary life – from his early childhood to the literary phenomenon of his Discworld series and everything in-between and beyond . . .
The Official Terry Pratchett Biography . . . with footnotes!
At the time of his death in 2015, our favourite author Sir Terry Pratchett was working on his finest story yet – his own. This is the story of a master storyteller, told by Terry himself and completed by his friend, assistant & guardian of Pratchett’s literary estate Rob Wilkins.
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.
‘Of all the dead authors in the world, Terry Pratchett is the most alive.’
