'A lie can run round the world before the truth has got its boots on'
William de Worde is the accidental editor of the Discworld's first newspaper.
Now he must cope with the traditional perils of a journalist's life - people who want him dead, a recovering vampire with a suicidal fascination for flash photography, some more people who want him dead in a different way and, worst of all, the man who keeps begging him to publish pictures of his humorously shaped potatoes.
William just wants to get at THE TRUTH. Unfortunately, everyone else wants to get at William. And it's only the third edition...
The Discworld novels can be read in any order but The Truth is a standalone novel.

'Other writers are mining the rich seam of comic fantasy that Pratchett first unearthed, but what keeps Pratchett on top is - quite literally - the way he tells them.'
'One of the funniest English authors alive'

Sir Terry Pratchett’s favourite drink was a banana daiquiri. So, to celebrate his birthday on 28 April, we’re making a terrific banana milkshake to toast the occasion!
