Sir Terry Pratchett: 'Imagination, Not Intelligence, Made Us Human'

The interview is about the promotion of Pratchett's (then) new book Snuff (2011), which was his last book of the 'Night Watch' series, or at least the one with my favourite character, Sam Vimes in it.  He does touch on one of his other book Unseen Academicals (2009) which is possibly my absolute favourite book, especially his fond retelling of the creation of Glenda Sugarbean: "you'll find ladies like her everywhere.  Never got on at school, mucked about, suddenly found, at the age of about twenty five, that she had a class one brain on her shoulders.  And, although Nut, I suppose was the 'official hero,' she was absolutely, I think, the heroine - because, in many ways she drove events and I just loved her...finding out that she really had worth...and purpose."
