This week at latimes.com/books:

In Astral Weeks, Ed Park visits Terry Pratchett's "wonderful, dangerously addictive universe." Pratchett, whose "Discworld" series consists of dozens of titles, undertakes one of the most difficult tasks a writer can set for himself: using humor to get at our hypocrisies and foibles in an effort to rearrange our understanding of the world.
