    Controversial and consummate essayist Christopher Hitchens looks with love, loathing, warmth, and authority at a wide range of political and cultural issues, past and present. Astute, vivid, and uninhibited on dozens of famous and not-so-famous writers, he is a phrasemaker par excellence, with a quiver full of barbed arrows, ready to fly at unsuspecting targets. His fresh perceptions of such figures as varied as Charles Dickens, Karl Marx, Rebecca West, George Orwell, J.G. Ballard, and Philip Larkin are matched in brilliance by his pungent discussions and intrepid observations, gathered from a lifetime of traveling and reporting from such destinations as Iran, China, and Pakistan. What emerges from this indispensable volume is an intellectual self-portrait of a writer with an exemplary steadiness of purpose and a love affair with the English language. Christopher Hitchens passed away on December 15, 2011). Index. 788p.

Amis was known in his time as a socialite--and a lush! And now, his myriad thoughts on his favorite past time are served up, the wit: extra dry like his martinis.

    With his pummeling erudition and wit, journalist Christopher Hitchens addresses the most urgent issue of our time: the malignant force of religion in the world. Redefining the debate about religion in public life, Hitchens takes on the faithful, arguing eloquently to make the ultimate case against religion through a close & learned reading of the major religious texts. Citing the personal story of his own dangerous encounters with faith, Hitchens describes his intellectual journey toward a secular view of life based on science and reason, in which the heavens are replaced by the Hubble telescope's awesome view and the double helix replaces Moses and the burning bush. 307p.

    In the tradition of Bertrand Russell's Why I Am Not a Christian, Christopher Hitchens makes the ultimate case against religion in this series of acute readings of the major religious texts. He demonstrates the ways in which religion is man-made, dangerously sexually repressive and distorts the very origins of the cosmos. With robust clarity, Hitchens frames the argument for a more secular life based on science and reason, in which hell is replaced by the Hubble Telescope's awesome view of the universe and Moses and the burning bush give way to the beauty and symmetry of the double helix. Arguing that the concept of an omniscient God has profoundly damaged humanity, Hitchens farily revels in the possibility of society without religion. References, Index. 307p.

    This second volume of Christopher Isherwood's remarkable diaries opens on his fifty-sixth birthday, as the fifties give way to the decade of social and sexual revolution. Isherwood takes the reader from the bohemian sunshine of Southern California to a London finally swinging free of postwar gloom, to the racy cosmpolitanism of New York and to the raw Australian outback. he charts his ongoing quest for spiritual certainty under the guidance of his Hindu guru, and he reveals in reckless detail the emotional drama of his love for the American painter Don Bachardy, thrity years his junior and struggling to establish his own artistic identity. The diaries are crammed with wicked gossip and probing psychological insights about the cultural icons of the time - from Francis Bacon to Gore Vidal. But the diaries are most revealing about Isherwood himself - his fiction, his film writing, his college teaching, and his affairs of the heart. In the background run references to the political and historical events of the period. , i.e., the Vietnam War, the Summer of Love. An unparalleled chronicle with open-ended consequences. Glossary, Index. 756p.
