Only released this week and seems to be the cheapest around, Christopher Hitchens memoirs in Hardback.

Description from Amazon:

Over the last thirty years, Christopher Hitchens has established himself as one of the world's most influential public intellectuals. His originality, bravery, range, and wit made him first a leading iconoclast of the political left and then, later in his career, a formidable advocate of secular liberalism. When the Twin Towers were attacked in September 2001, Hitchens was re-energised again, quickly emerging as one of the fiercest and most influential advocates of war on Iraq. In this long-awaited and candid memoir, Hitchens re-traces the footsteps of his life to date, from his childhood in Portsmouth, with his adoring, tragic mother and reserved Naval officer father; to his life in Washington DC, the base from which from he would launch fierce attacks on tyranny of all kinds. Along the way, he recalls the girls, boys and booze; the friendships and the feuds; the grand struggles and lost causes; and, the mistakes and misgivings that have characterised his life. "Hitch-22" is, by turns, moving and funny, charming and infuriating, enraging and inspiring. It is an indispensable companion to the life and thought of our pre-eminent political writer.


Good stuff

Looking fwd to reading this to see if I can reconcile my admiration for his polemics against 'god' and organised religion with my profound unease with his lurch to the right during the Iraq War. He's a complicated man, but at least he's not his brother, the biggest tit the political right has ever known.

I used to enjoy his brother's writings on criminal trials, whereas I find Christopher Hitchen's stuff a bit ranting. I will get this when it's in The Works or Poundland.

Will make such a change from the usual bland gufff. Yes Iraq war stance did not sit well with me but I do admire his thoughts and delivery
