Discworld - Spirit of Wrath

If Unseen Academicals was the looking for the coat, I Shall Wear Midnight is the saying goodbye to people while looking for the host.  Characters are brought out that we may see for the last time, small themes are wrapped up and put away.  And questions are answered.

Again, my thought that Tiffany is what Esk might have been as a recurring character comes to mind.  Of course Esk showing up in this book shows how the path diverged, but again I get the sense of a path not taken and longed for.

But now, there comes Snuff which is the distraction on the way out the door that brings you back into the party...
