ADAMS, Douglas

(1952 - 2001)
“I love deadlines. I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by.”

Douglas Adams became a member of footlights whilst reading English at Cambridge. Later a writing partnership with Graham Chapman led to a fleeting association with Monty Python's Flying Circus both as a writer and actor.

In 1978 the BBC radio broadcast a serialisation of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, which developed a cult following. A book under the same title was published in 1979 and later became part of a "trilogy" of five Hitchhiker's books.

According to Adams, the idea for the title occurred to him while he lay drunk in a field in Austria gazing up at the stars.
