A Slip of the Keyboard: Collected NonfictionA Slip of the Keyboard: Collected Nonfiction by Terry Pratchett

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


A gathering of nonfiction written over the years by Terry Pratchett. Organized by subject rather than chronologically, the collection does exhibit a bit of redundancy and, while completists will disagree, a couple of the essays here could have been culled in favor of counterparts already included. That said, Pratchett's wit, humor, and intelligence are on full display here. Neil Gaiman's introduction asserts rightly that Terry Pratchett is angry and that is something that is evident throughout this collection as well. Fans and writers will be interested in his essays about his creative process and the later essays about his Alzheimer's diagnosis and his advocacy for "assisted dying" are heart-rending and important. Essential reading for Pratchett fans.
