|Plot Summary of Wish You Were Here: The Official Biography of Douglas Adams|
Ballantine, Mar 2005, 25.95, 384 pp.
“Far out in the uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the western spiral arm of the galaxy lies a small unregarded yellow sun"; there on a inconsequential rock revolving around this insignificant star, Douglas Adams used humor to place the importance of earthlings in the Einstein Universe. Nick Webb in turn provides insight into the life of Mr. Adams, the brain behind such classic tales as The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy; don't panic there is still time if you ignore your digital watch to read the amusing novel and its wacky sequels or catch the TV series. The well-written biography discusses Adams' prim and proper British education and during the artistic period of starvation, overwork, and fame.
