For over 40 years, Christopher Hitchens wrote, with passionate commitment, on matters that others feared to broach. This assortment of essays spans his whole career and encompasses his writing on politics, literature, and religion. It is the most comprehensive collection of Hitchens’ work, and contains all aspects of his wide repertoire as journalist, polemicist, and critic.
Divided into sections such as “All American”, “Eclectic Affinities”, and “Foreign Quarrels”, it contains his views on subjects ranging from Clinton to Kissinger, Powell to Proust. Hitchens’ life was one of defiance, wit, courage, and humility. He was a voice of reason, making his indelible and brilliant mark on politics and literature on both sides of the Atlantic. While his many books exist as a formidable legacy, it is his mastery of short-form journalism and criticism that constitute his lasting claim to greatness, and makeArguably a unique and not-to-be-missed anthology.
