A Slip of the Keyboard is a collection of essays and other nonfiction from Terry Pratchett, spanning the
whole of his writing career from his early years to the present day.
Terry Pratchett has earned
a place in the hearts of readers the world over with his bestselling Discworld
series, but in recent years he has become equally well known and respected as
an outspoken campaigner for such causes as Alzheimer’s research and animal
rights. A Slip of the Keyboard brings together for the first time the
finest examples of Pratchett’s nonfiction writing, both serious and surreal, from musings on mushrooms to what it means to be a writer (and why banana
daiquiris are so important), from memories of Granny Pratchett to speculation
about Gandalf’s love life and passionate defenses of the causes dear to him.
With all the humor and
humanity that have made his novels so enduringly popular, this collection
brings Pratchett out from behind the scenes of the Discworld to speak for
himself—man and boy, bibliophile and computer geek, champion of hats,
orangutans, and dignity in dying. Download and start listening now!
