For greater than 20 years, Terry Pratchett has been regaling readers with stories of Discworld—a flat international balanced at the backs of 4 elephants, that are status at the again of a big turtle, flying via area. it's a global populated by way of ineffectual wizards and sharp-as-tacks witches, via drained policemen and devious dictators, by means of reformed thieves and vampires who've sworn to drink no blood. it's a global that's greatly assorted from our personal . . . other than while it isn't.

Now, in The Wit and knowledge of Discworld, a number of nuggets of Pratchett's witty remark and sagacious observations were compiled through Pratchett specialist Stephen Briggs, a guy who, they are saying, is familiar with much more approximately Discworld than Terry Pratchett.

Within those pages, you will discover musings on:

  • Interior decorating: "It's a truth recognized through the universes that regardless of how conscientiously the colours are selected, institutional decor finally ends up as both vomit eco-friendly, unmentionable brown, nicotine yellow, or surgical equipment crimson. by means of a few little-understood means of sympathetic resonance, corridors painted in these colours continuously scent a bit of boiled cabbage—even if no cabbage is ever cooked within the vicinity." (Equal Rites)
  • Travel: "Any pro vacationer quickly learns to prevent something wanted on them as a 'regional speciality,' simply because all of the time period skill is that the dish is so disagreeable the folk dwelling all over else will chunk off their very own legs instead of devour it. yet hosts nonetheless press it upon far-off visitors besides: 'Go on, have the dog's head filled with macerated cabbage and beef noses—it's a local speciality.'" (The final Continent)
  • Young men: "And then there has been the younger male stroll. at the least girls swung in simple terms their hips. younger males swung every thing, from the shoulders down. you might want to try and occupy loads of house. It makes you glance larger, like a tomcat fluffing his tail. the lads attempted to stroll immense in self-defense opposed to all these different massive boys in the market. i am undesirable, i am fierce, i am cool, i would like a pint of shandy and me mam desires me domestic through nine." (Monstrous Regiment)
  • Class: "'Old funds' intended that it were made goodbye in the past that the black deeds that had initially stuffed the coffers have been now traditionally beside the point. humorous, that; a brigand for a father was once whatever you saved quiet approximately, yet a slave-taking pirate for a great-great-great-grandfather used to be anything to boast of over the port. Time became the evil bastards into rogues, and rogue was once a note with a twinkle in its eye and not anything to be ashamed of." (Making Money)

. . . and extra! Culled from the entire Discworld novels, The Wit and knowledge of Discworld confirms Pratchett's position within the pantheon of serious satirists and proves why the Chicago Tribune has praised his Discworld as "entertaining and gloriously humorous . . . an accomplishment not anything wanting magical."
