Description
By now the story is legendary. Arthur Dent, mild-mannered, out-to-lunch earth-ling, is plucked from his planet by his friend Ford Prefect just seconds before it was demolished to make way for a hyper-space bypass. Ford, posing as an out-of-work actor, is a researcher for the revised edition of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Together the gruesome twosome begin their now-famous inter-galactic journey through time, space and best-sellerdom.

This book is the “founder of the feast” – the books which followed in the series, the enormously successful BBC Radio series, a BBC television series shown in the US on HBO a stage play, a record – even a bath towel. RosettaBooks also publishes three other titles in the series – The Restaurant at the End of the Universe, So Long as Thanks for All the Fish and Life,the Universe and Everything.
