Christopher Hitchens was an unparalleled, prolific writer, who
raised the polemical essay to a new art form, over a lifetime of
thinking and debating the defining issues of our times. As an
essayist he contributed to the New Statesman, Atlantic Monthly,
London Review of Books, TLS and Vanity Fair. Any publication of a
volume of Hitchens' essays was a major event on both sides of the
Atlantic. Now comes the last of the last; a volume of Hitchens'
previously unpublished essays, covering the themes that define
Hitchens the thinker: literature, religion and politics. These
essays remind us, once more, of the fierce, brilliant and trenchant
voice of Christopher Hitchens.
