Nation by Terry Pratchett lands on the |> SALE <| shelves in my shop.
Doubleday, 2008, Hardback in dust wrapper.
From the cover: 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, the Sweet Judy, which sails over and through the island rainforest. As the ship comes to a crashing halt, only one soul is left alive (or two, if you count parrots).
The village has gone. The Nation as it was has gone. Now theres just Mau, who wears barely anything, a trouser-man girl who wears far too much, and an awful lot of big misunderstandings.
And a lot of not-knowing-what-to-do. Or how to even say that.
Together they must forge a new Nation out of the broken pieces. Create a new history.
WHO IS GUARDING THE NATION? WHERE IS OUR BEER?
the old history isnt going to just lie down and go away, at least not while the Grandfathers still have a voice. And Mau must look into the past before he can face the future.
Wise, witty and filled with Terry Pratchetts inimitable comic satire, this is a terrific adventure that quite literally turns the world upside down.
Very Good in Very Good Dust Wrapper.
