The revealing, official biography of Douglas Adams, one of the world's favourite and bestselling novelists.
'The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy' launched Douglas Adams to instant superstardom when it came out in 1978, becoming a huge success as a novel, radio and TV series. Like all his best work it was funny, but seriously funny.
But Adams the comic writer who worked with Monty Python among others is only part of the story. He had a probing scientific mind, and was happy discussing ideas with the likes of Richard Dawkins or Steven Pinker. And his ideas in 'Hitchhiker' helped inspire the techies of the IT revolution.
Nick Webb, who knew him very well for many years, has created a wonderful portrait of a larger than life character who is still mourned by his millions of fans around the world.
