‘One of the greatest achievements in comedy. A work of staggering genius’ – David WalliamsGorgeous 42nd Anniversary gift edition of Douglas Adams’s pop-culture classic, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, stunningly illustrated throughout by Costa Award-winner Chris Riddell. It’s an ordinary Thursday lunchtime for Arthur Dent until his house gets demolished.
The Earth follows shortly afterwards to make way for a new hyperspace express route, and Arthur’s best friend has just announced that he’s an alien. At this moment, they’re hurtling through space with nothing but their towels and a book inscribed in large, friendly letters: DON’T PANIC. The book is The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and the weekend has only just begun .
. . Douglas Adams’s mega-selling pop-culture classic sends logic into orbit, plays havoc with physics and twists time, but most importantly it’s very, very funny.
