They mention DNA in this article about writer, Nicholas Eftimiades:
"With his comedic dystopian future history populated by hapless reluctant heroes and lovesick artificial intelligences, Nick takes a big step toward becoming the American Douglas Adams"

Sounds like he's worth checking out.
Man, I wouldn't want to be compared to Adams. People would hold the bar too high!  8)

I think his other title, "Enemy of the People" might be even tougher to live up to.
