HITCH-22: A Memoir


HITCH-22: A Memoir

CHRISTOPHER HITCHENS    Book Number: 90637    Product format: Paperback

One of the world's most influential public intellectuals, Christopher Hitchens retraces the footsteps of his life to date, recalling the girls, boys and booze, friendships and feuds, grand struggles and lost causes, mistakes and misgivings in a memoir that is by turns moving and funny, charming and infuriating, enraging and inspiring. The Financial Times said, 'Few writers can match his cerebral pyrotechnics. Fewer still can emulate his punch as an intellectual character assassin. It is hard not to admire the sheer virtuosity of his prose.' And the economist 'at once sinuously written, evocative and frustrating. With a mixture of genuine charm and phoney self-deprecation.' Treasurable quotations, witty apercus, 435pp in paperback, 24 pages of photos including a 1968 one taken in Cuba at a work camp for young revolutionaries and being arrested by police at Oxford in the same year.
