The Truth by Terry Pratchett

The Truth by Terry PratchettTitle:  The Truth

Author:  Terry Pratchett

Call #:  FSY PRA

This hilarious fantasy novel is a satire on the role of the press. A rag-tag group of humans and dwarves start printing The Ankh-Morpork Times. Their pursuit of truth ends up uncovering a political conspiracy and puts them all in mortal danger. Along the way we meet a zombie lawyer, werewolf police, a vampire photographer, talking dogs, and a fine-art loving hit man. In true British humor style, the satire is thick and the jokes are dry, but you will be cheering for the newspaper, its publishers, and the truth for all 350+ pages.
