Alienating the Audience


Sep 5, 2023

At its height, Terry Pratchett's Discworld series accounted for fully 2% of all book sales in the United Kingdom. Over the course of his life he wrote 59 books, achieved knighthood, and created a beloved and hilarious franchise.
 
What was Pratchett's worldview, and what motivated him to crack jokes about Death and wizards?
 
Guest Marc Burrows wrote the first authorized biography of Pratchett, and just wrapped up a show about him at the Edinburgh Fringe.
