TERRY PRATCHETT    Book Number: 88530    Product format: Paperback

Pratchett was an indisputable one-off, gloriously unpredictable and the acclaimed creator of the bestselling Discworld series. Aimed at young adults, here is a wise and witty comic satire. On the day the world ends, Mau is on his way home from the Boys' Island. Soon he will be a man. And then the wave comes, a huge wave, dragging black night behind it and bringing a schooner which sails over and through the island rainforest. The village has gone. The Nation as it was has gone. Now there's just Mau, who wears barely anything, a trouser man girl who wears far too much, and an awful lot of big misunderstandings. Daphne is a traveller from the other side of the world, the sole survivor of the shipwreck. Separated by language and customs, the two are united by catastrophe and slowly they are joined by other refugees. They defy ancestral spirits, and challenge death itself in a world turned upside down. Daphne is an aristocratic English girl and together they must rebuild a community after this tsunami. US first edition paperback, 2009. Remainder mark. 369pp.
