About the Author

Christopher Hitchens (1949-2011) was a contributing editor to Vanity Fair and a columnist for Slate. He was the author of numerous books, including works on Thomas Jefferson, Thomas Paine, George Orwell, Mother Teresa, Henry Kissinger and Bill and Hillary Clinton, as well as his international bestseller and National Book Award nominee, god Is Not Great. His memoir, Hitch-22, which was a Sunday Times bestseller, was nominated for the Orwell Prize and was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award. His last book, Mortality, was published in 2012 by Atlantic Books.


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 *
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 *
