A Conversation for Obituary - Peter Jones
What the Book did for me (add your story) Started conversation May 12, 2001
It's strange to read this now that Douglas himself has passed away. This is such a beautiful passage, and really gives an insight into our favourite author. He obviously had a keen eye for spotting the special qualities in people.

Yes, lovely. I think Mr Adams's work encouraged us to communicate. It is deeply disturbing to find that his voice, such as I knew it, has passed from this sphere...but each time I go to say that, something about the idea doesn't ring true. What is this grief?

Like you, I have come to this obituary in the aftermath of the sad news of Douglas' own death.
Whenever I heard Peter Jones' voice I always thought of "the book". It's wonderful to hear stories of how that portrayal came about. That Douglas wrote this despite the fact he "didn't know him well" speaks volumes about both of them.
They will both be missed...
