Description

Christopher Hitchens (1949-2011) was a matchless writer, debater and humanist. Throughout his life he shone the light of reason and truth into the eyes of charlatans and hucksters, exposing falsehood and decrying hypocrisy wherever he found it. With his passing, the world has lost a great soul, the written word one of its finest advocates and those who stand for freedom everywhere have lost one of their clearest voices. Arguably collects Hitchens' writing on politics, literature and religion when he was at the zenith of his career; it is the indispensible companion to the finest English essayist since Orwell.

Review quote

To say that, during the past three decades, the world would have been poorer, duller and altogether a smaller place without Hitchens and his writings would be to utter a cliche of the kind he despises. It would also be true. -- John Gray New Statesman He has no equal in contemporary Anglo American letters. -- Jason Cowley Financial Times One of the most stimulating thinkers and entertaining writers we have. -- Bill Keller New York Times Essays on everything... remind us what we've lost in Hitchens - someone to provoke assent, outrage, laughter and thought Sunday Telegraph Read it you must, partly as a tribute to a great life well lived, but mainly because it is so entertaining Sunday Times Hitchens at his most stylish, savage, literate and brilliant Observer
