Product description

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.

Review quote

"'dazzling, and often very moving, writing from the 1990s by 'one of the most prolific, as well as brilliant, journalists of our time' (Observer). 'An exceptional political polemicist... Christopher Hichens might end up as the best literary and cultural critic of his generation.' David Herman, Prospect 'Hitchens is just too damn good.' Peter Wilby, New Statesman"
