This article is from the Douglas Adams FAQ, by Nathan Hughes email@example.com with numerous contributions by others.
In this section you will find information on Douglas Adams. The
information isn't very detailed, because of (a) a desire to respect
his privacy, and (b) you might as well buy "Don't Panic" anyway (see
the very start of the file for information on Don't Panic).

1.2 What's this about the barrister? (Douglas Adams)
After nearly a decade of saying in his blurbs that he was nearly
married to a lady barrister, on November 25 1991 Douglas Adams and
Jane Belson tied the knot in a quiet ceremony at Finsbury town hall in
London. Bad luck, ladies. They live in Islington.
1.3 What's this about Rocket Launches? (Douglas Adams)
(as quoted from DNA)
A piece of personal information:
My wife Jane gave birth to our first child on June 22nd (1994). Her name
is Polly Jane Adams, but while she was in the womb she acquired the nickname
Rocket. She's long and slim and dark haired and is incomprehensibly beautiful.
