    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.

  • Hitch-22: A Memoir

    • Format: Hardcover
    • ISBN-13: 9780446540339
    • Publisher: Twelve
    • Published: June 2010
    One of the most noticed and debated public intellectuals of our time, despite decades on the public stage, Christopher Hitchens has rarely written of the private dimensions of his life - until now. The book is the candid,personal history of a complicated man: English-born and American by adoption, all atheist and partly Jewish, stalwartly bohemian (proudly flaunting 'drinking' along with 'disputation' as 'hobbies' in Who's Who), and rigorously intellectual. Here he discusses his famously unbending convictions, tracing the thread of principle that connects his opposition to war in Vietnam and his support for intervention in Iraq. Written in a mode that is anything but shy. Photos.

    Over the past few decades, the irrepressibly opinionated Christopher Hitchens has criss-crossed the globe debating religious scholars, Catholic clergy, rabbis, and devout Muslims as well as Christians on the existence of God and the supposed morality of religion - appearances that have attracted thousands on both sides of 'whatever issue:' From U.S. policy in the Middle East to the death of Jerry Falwell to the sainthood of Mother Teresa, Hitchens is always armed with pithy discourse that is deeply grounded in a wide-ranging knowledge of literature, and the currency of world events. Drawn from Hitchens's many TV appearances, debates, lectures, interviews, articles, and books, this A-Z omnibus of 'Hitch-talk' tackles subjects alphabetically - from atheism and alcoholism to George Orwell and Bertrand Russell, from Islamofascism and Iraq to smoking and sex - and perfectly captures the wit and depth of one of the contemporary world's more terrifying rhetoricians, baying in his element. Martin Amis, in his foreword, writes 'In debate, no matter what the motion, I would back him against Cicero, against Demosthenes.' Case closed. Open the book! Christopher Hitchens passed away on December 15, 2011. 332p.
