Terry Pratchett. Pravda. (The Truth)
"Immerse yourself into the thrilling adventures of William de Worde, the founder of the first newspaper in Discworld, "Ankh-Morpork Times"! "The Truth" is one of the most outstanding non-cycle works in the Discworld series. The fine line between facts and rumors, jokes and allusions closely intertwine "The Truth" with contemporary realities and create the masterful satire of the information sector and the society as a whole. While the particular, intellectual and, at the same time, simple philosophy, unexpected stylistic techniques, hints at classical works and pop culture phenomena guarantee enjoying reading."
Translated from English by Oleksandr Mikhelson
