Forget The Hitchhiker's Guide, this is the only handbook you need to navigate your way through the goings on of outer space. What do you say to an intellectually superior fistular maggot who wants to observe you watching football? What happens when you switch your android's personality setting to 'humour'? Discover the most popular and most pungent Earth mementos taken into space and illuminate the murkiest areas of human knowledge: the meaning of the oldest writing in the universe, who set off the big bang, the catalyst for the death of literature and, of course, how the world will end. Poetic, grotesque, hilarious, disgusting and visionary, Astrotruckers will reveal all this and more.
