Author Neil Gaiman narrates this formally irreverent, witty and often touching look at the life of Douglas Adams, who became world famous for his series of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy books. During a post-college tour of continental Europe, the youthful and wayward Douglas Adams was staring up at the night sky, and it dawned on him that he was the only man on earth that could write a helpful guide to anyone traveling across the cosmos. After a series of fits and starts, his brand of humor-laden science fiction took off when it was dramatized by the BBC, and his career as an author, game designer, public speaker and ecological advocate skyrocketed. Famous friends and intimate family members offer their thoughts on Adams’ work, with insider tidbits guaranteed to satisfy the biggest “Hitchhiker” fans, and personal insights on the man himself that will leave you surprised, laughing and ultimately missing a writer that left the planet too soon.
