The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

book | Fiction | 1979
UK & Canada → Pan Macmillan
US → Penguin Random House

An international phenomenon and pop-culture classic, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (volume one in a series of five) has been a radio show, TV series, novel, stage play, comic book and film. Following the galactic (mis)adventures of Arthur Dent, Hitchhiker’s in its various incarnations has captured the imaginations of curious minds around the world...

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 his best friend has just announced that he's an alien. At this moment, they're hurtling through space with nothing but their towels and an innocuous-looking book inscribed, in large friendly letters, with the words: DON'T PANIC.

The weekend has only just begun...
