same genre as Pilgrim's Progress.

  "That's not to compare the two, just to point out that there is

a genre with a long history, which is that of the innocent abroad

in a fantastical world.

  "A graduate student sent me a long paper on one book that

we know for sure that John Bunyan (author of Pilgrim's Progress)

actually read. It's called The Plain Man's Path to Heaven, written

by an English Puritan writer called Arthur Dent. He assumed

that I was ware of this and was having some extraordinary

academic joke.

  "Once you've decided to find parallels you can find them all

the time: you can add up numbers, you can compare images...

you can pick up any two books and if you wished to prove they

were parallel, you could do it. You could pick up the Bible and

the telephone directory, and you could prove that each has a

direct relationship to the other."

  - Douglas Adams.

THE LAST WORD. . .

 

 

  Dear Mr Adams,

  You're weird. Or at least your writing is weird. That's okay

by me. I'm a little weird myself. If you are really one of those

terribly dull people who just write weird please keep it a secret, I

hate being disillusioned. . .
