Sir Terry Pratchett’s hilarious send up of redemption in the age of technology.
Moist von Lipwig is a con artist. He has excellent qualifications and experience for this line of work. He is a fraud, a natural born-criminal, an habitual liar, a perverted genius and totally untrustworthy.
This is the sort of man to whom Lord Vetinari (Patrician of Ankh-Morpork) offers a life choice – be hanged, or put Ankh-Morpork’s ailing postal service back on its feet.
It is going to be a tough decision for Moist, but perhaps there’s a shot at redemption for a man who’s prepared to push the envelope?
Of course before he comes anywhere close to success, he will have a multitude of problems to overcome. Just to mention a few, there is his parole officer Mr. Pump – a golem made of clay who, like any other government official, is tireless in his sense of duty; there are tons of undelivered mail who insist on talking to him; the shadowy characters from the Grand Trunk Company want him deader than his dead letters, and his new “girlfriend” sees straight through him. So much for SWALK!
And here he'd thought that all he'd have to face was rain, snow, gloom of night, and the odd vicious dog or two.
Will Moist Von Lipwig redeem himself, or will he end up “going postal”? Join us in this hilarious adventure from the pen of world famous author Sir Terry Pratchett to find out.
