ABSTRACT
FOR Sir Terry Pratchett, the world's bestselling comic author since the Eighties, the defining moment of his life has nothing to do with books. It happened while shooting a conservation film on a jungle trail in Borneo, 30 years ago, when he came face to face with a 300lb orangutan called Kusasi.
