Snuff

Issue section: 

Terry Pratchett

Terry Pratchett's latest novel, Snuff, may well be his swan song. As his own personal battle with Alzheimer's develops, each of his books feels like he is tying up the loose ends of a long and distinguished literary career.

In Snuff, Pratchett returns to perhaps his greatest character set - the Ankh-Morpork City Watch and its chief, Commander Sam Vimes. Despite being centred on the police, these books are often the most overtly political of Pratchett's books, talking most often about class and the machinations of government.
