Two of my favorite literary series have very little in common. The numerous adventures of Sherlock Holmes are especially notable for the incredible feats of logic performed by the consulting detective, while The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy is an absurdist sci-fi tale filled with fish that can translate any language and a restaurant where you can literally watch the universe end. Luckily for me, there is a character that combines the very best aspects of both: Dirk Gently, the holistic detective.
