Author Terry Pratchett recently announced that he has early onset Alzheimer’s disease, a form of the brain disorder that strikes before the age of 65.
In typical Pratchett style, he described the news as ‘an embuggerance’ but still continues to work on his comic novels.
He’s just given an audio interview to the BBC where he discusses his diagnosis, how he views the future, and how the brain changes are affecting his day-to-day life.
He is wonderfully open and optimistic, and quite inspiring, in his usual quiet, humorous way.
