Subject: Knighthood for Adams ( 1 of 7 )
Posted by joe

I'm an American so maybe it's not my place to say this, but I think that Douglas Adams should be given a knighthood for his contribution to literature world wide. He has done for literature what Charles Bernstein did for poetry, he made complete nonesense into sense, he took drama and comedy and mixed them into a Pan - Galactic Gargle blaster of sheer froodiness. He turned pathos on its ear and made a silly Monty-Pythonesque musical about it. Mr. Adams I'm not sure if your books were meant to be read the way I read them, but they did for me what few comedies and even fewer science-fictions have been able to do, have humanity in their alienness.
