Douglas Adams’ magnificent The Hitch-Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy is a wonderful source of metaphor for the absurdity of our times. Runs out of steam about halfway through book three (Life, the Universe and Everything), and you should avoid at all costs books four and five, but the first two books in the series (The Hitch-Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and The Restaurant at the End of the Universe) are sublime.
