Product description

Review

"Jem manages to write about popular cultural institutions with knowledge and affection" (Stephen Fry)

"Jem, you're very charming, it's a pleasure to go on about it" (Barry Cryer)

"Roberts’s lively conversational prose never tries to ape Adams’s own style, but tells the story of his life in an accessible, compelling flow… this is a thoroughly absorbing read." (SFX magazine)

"Hitchhikers is one of the most amazing pieces of literature created in modern times… His biographer Jem Roberts puts it all into context" (The Sun)

"Roberts has done some meticulous work here and clearly cares for his subject’5*" (Daily Sport)

Book Description

"Hey, you sass that hoopy Ford Prefect? There's a frood who really knows where his towel is." (Sass: know, be aware of, meet, have sex with; hoopy: really together guy; frood: really amazingly together guy.) Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
