Douglas Adams was born in Cambridge, England in 1952. He has written for radio, television and theater and has worked as a hospital reporter, barn builder, radio producer, and script editor. His bestsellers include The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe, Life, the Universe and Everything, So Long and Thanks for All the Fish, Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency, and The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul. Adams died in 2001.


It's historical fiction with a kind of weird, surreal, postmodern twist, in that the whole novel is a flashback from the point of view of a narrator who happens to be a book. This is a story being told by a book - Isaac Newton's master work of science called the "Principia Mathematica."
