For more than three decades, Terry Pratchett has been enthralling millions of fans worldwide with his irreverent, wonderfully funny satires set in the fabulously imaginative Discworld, a universe remarkably similar to our own. From sports to religion, politics to education, science to capitalism, and everything in between, Pratchett has skewered sacred cows with both laughter and deep wisdom, and exposed our warts, foibles, and eccentricities in a unique, entertaining, and ultimately serious way. In this thirty-eighth entry to his esteemed Discworld canon, the beloved Commander Sam Vimes of the Ankh-Morpork City Watch is taking a vacation. But this is Discworld, where nothing goes as planned—and hilarious adventure ensues.
