Description

"If someone says I'm doing this out of faith, I say, Why don't you do it out of conviction?" -CHRISTOPHER HITCHENS One of his generation's greatest public intellectuals, and perhaps its fiercest, Christopher Hitchens was a brilliant interview subject. This collection-which spans from his early prominence as a hero of the Left to his controversial support for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan toward the end of his life- showcases Hitch's trademark wit on subjects as diverse as his mistrust of the media, his love of literature, his dislike of the Clintons, and his condemnation of all things religious. Beginning with an introduction and tribute from his longtime friend Stephen Fry, this collection culminates in Hitchens's fearless final interview with Richard Dawkins, which shows a man as unafraid of death as he was of everything in life.
