Anglepoised Notes

Amphibious Nostrils

May 05, 2002

Excerpt from The Salmon of Doubt, the late Douglas Adams’ third and incomplete Dirk Gently novel. Also features about 50 short Adams pieces (mostly non-fiction).

“I have always been absurdly, ridiculously tall. To give you an idea-when we went on school expeditions to Interesting and Improving Places, the form-master wouldn’t say “Meet under the clock tower,” or “Meet under the War Memorial,” but “Meet under Adams.” I was at least as visible as anything else on the horizon, and could be repositioned at will.”
