Adams, Douglas

▪ British author
in full  Douglas Noël Adams  
born March 11, 1952, Cambridge, England
died May 11, 2001, Santa Barbara, California, U.S.

      British comic writer whose works satirize contemporary life through a luckless protagonist who deals ineptly with societal forces beyond his control. Adams is best known for the mock science-fiction series known collectively as The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

      Adams received an M.A. (1974) in English literature from Cambridge University, where he wrote comedy sketches for the performing arts society. He was an editor for the television series Dr. Who and wrote scripts for the British Broadcasting Corporation from 1978 to 1980.

      The Hitchhiker's Guide series is an epic parody that lampoons modern society with biting humour and pessimism. The work achieved great popularity, first as a 12-part series on radio in 1978 and then in a 5-book series that sold more than 14 million copies internationally. The books in the series are The Restaurant at the End of the Universe (1980), Life, the Universe and Everything (1982), So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish (1985), and Mostly Harmless (1992). The Hitchhiker's Guide was adapted for television and theatre and was used as the basis of interactive computer program.

      Adams satirized the detective-story genre with Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency (1987) and The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul (1988). Other works include The Meaning of Liff (with John Lloyd; 1983), The Utterly Utterly Merry Comic Relief Christmas Book (coeditor, with Peter Fincham; 1986), and Last Chance to See… (with Mark Carwardine; 1990), a radio series also published in 1990 as a nonfiction book.
