An authorized biography of the creator of the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, with an introduction by Douglas Adams.Douglas Adams is one of the most celebrated science fiction and comedy writers of his generation. He is best known for the best-selling radio, book, TV, and film series The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, along with Dirk Gently's Detective Agency, episodes of Doctor Who, and his collaborations with members of Monty Python.In this lively and entertaining biography, Jem Roberts examines the struggles Douglas went through to get the original Hitchhikers radio series commissioned, his subsequent successes, frustrations, and battles with writer's block.  The audiobook is narrated by Kris Dyer and was originally produced for the RNIB Talking Books studio.Praise for the book:"Jem manages to write about popular cultural institutions with knowledge and affection, while avoiding the dismal traps of nerdy fanboyism on the one hand or grandiose cultural pseudo-intellectualism on the other. His research is flawless and the results are readable, illuminating and delightful." (Stephen Fry, actor and author)"Roberts’s lively conversational prose never tries to ape Adams’s own style, but tells the story of his life in an accessible, compelling flow...a thoroughly absorbing read."

Tras años de injusto olvido, Alfaguara se suma al fenómeno editorial del descubrimiento de Lucia Berlin, el secreto mejor guardado de la literatura estadounidense, una auténtica revolución literaria. XVII Premi Llibreter 2016. Libro del Año según Babelia. Una revelación literaria: el secreto mejor guardado de la literatura estadounidense. Manual para mujeres de la limpieza reúne los mejores textos de la legendaria escritora de relatos Lucia Berlin, uno de los secretos mejor guardados de la literatura estadounidense. Con su inigualable toque de humor y melancolía, Berlin crea verdaderos milagros con episodios del día a día. Las mujeres de sus cuentos están desorientadas pero, al mismo tiempo, son fuertes, inteligentes y, sobre todo, extraordinariamente reales. Son autoestopistas, duras trabajadoras, malas cristianas. Ríen, lloran, beben. Sobreviven en un mundo de jockeys, doctores y telefonistas con un ingenio propio de Lorrie Moore y la agudeza de Raymond Carver. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION One of The New York Times Book Review's Ten Best Books of 2015 "I have always had faith that the best writers will rise to the top, like cream, sooner or later, and will become exactly as well-known as they should be-their work talked about, quoted, taught, performed, filmed, set to music, anthologized. Perhaps, with the present collection, Lucia Berlin will begin to gain the attention she deserves." -Lydia Davis. A manual for cleaning women compiles the best work of the legendary shortstory writer Lucia Berlin. With the grit of Raymond Carver, the humor of Grace Paley, and a blend of wit and melancholy all her own, Berlin crafts miracles from the everyday, uncovering moments of grace in the Laundromats and halfway houses of the American Southwest, in the homes of the Bay Area upper class, among switchboard operators and struggling mothers, hitchhikers and bad Christians. Readers will revel in this remarkable collection from a master of the form and wonder how they'd ever overlooked her in the first place.

This book by and about Russian hitchhikers will take the reader along the endless roads of Siberia, the Urals, the Altai, Central Russia and beyond. Included are Irina Bogatyreva's short novel Hitchhiking, Igor Savelyev's Pale City, and Tatiana Mazepina's Journey towards Paradise - all winners of the Debut Prize. These hitchhikers call themselves 'the last generation of free travelers' - they feel that the world is becoming increasingly more uniform and comfortable and therefore less interesting, and so they hasten to make the most of the places at the back of beyond. Jack Kerouac is their guru; only on the road do they ever feel really free.

This book is a survey of typical Science Fiction elements in Douglas Adams's Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Christian Erkenbrecher first goes through a short history of Science Fiction and identifies certain motifs of the genre in order to correctly place the novel within a useful context. Classical elements of the Science Fiction canon are identified in the novel and scrutinized. It becomes clear that Douglas Adams was fully aware of the SF 'burden' and we can see how its elements are used in order to create both humour and criticism. The question of whether social criticism can be applied purposefully in SF will be asked. Other big questions which are posed (and answered?) in Hitchhikers are also taken into consideration: Is there a god? Will the breakdown of communication barriers between races put an end to all wars? Can the advancement of technology prevent us from destroying ourselves? Follow the author on his way through Douglas Adams's 'wholly remarkable book' and see how this exceptional hitchhiking playwright and atheist writer enriched the world with his unique prose.
