Author Douglas Adams was born March 11, 1952 in Cambridge, England, and has a sister three years younger than him. After his parents divorced, he, his sister, and mother went to an RSPCA animal shelter in Brentwood, Essex that his mother’s parents ran. After college, he first wanted to work on television and radio as a writer. He would form a brief writing partnership with Graham Chapman where he wrote a sketch (called Patient Abuse) for “Monty Python”; he is one of two people that are not part of the original members to get a writing credit. He would appear on the show two different times. After that, his career stalled and he had to do different odd jobs. Originally, “Hitchhikers” was a radio comedy program that was adapted, by Adams, into other things. The biggest of which, was the novel. Adams was the only student that ever got a perfect ten from his form master Frank Halford; which is something that he would use to get through periods of writer’s block. He would graduate college in the year 1974 with a BA in English literature. Douglas Adams died from a heart attack on May 11, 2001 at the age of 49.

1 thought on “Douglas Adams”

  1. I, much like everyone else in my age range, read the Hitchhiker books when I was in middle school/high school and loved them. While there are certainly flaws (will Arthur ever get some clothes?), these books are classics and are well worth reading.

    I’d never checked out Dirk Gently though. Not until I started watching the BBC America series and realized that these books were right up my alley. They are so rich, complicated and puzzling that you might need to read it twice. Or at the very least, read some blogs to help explain it. I know that is not for everybody, but it is definitely for me. What a fantastic author Adams was.
