The departure point for this book is an antique saying: life is not complete unless love, poverty and war have been experienced. In 'Love', Christopher Hitchens celebrates the work of Joyce, Proust and Borges. 'Poverty' includes a series of devastating assessments of Michael Moore and the cult of the Kennedys. The book's final section, 'War', contains biting reportage from North Korea, Pakistan and Iraq.
