Christopher Hitchens is one of the great conversationalists of our age and his wit, style and erudition are brilliantly deployed in this glittering autobiography. Hitch-22 sparkles with funny stories, treasurable quotations, witty apercus and deft descriptions. --Sunday Times
A pert yet elegantly written memoir. --Sunday Telegraph
A fascinating account of the influences - political, cultural and philosophical - on Hitchens's intellectual development... A funny, sad, incisive, and serious narrative... He is our son and one of our most gifted writers. We should take pride in that and be busting our guts to get him back. --Spectator
"'If Hitchens didn't exist, we wouldn't be able to invent him.' Ian McEwan 'Razor-sharp... Outstanding' A.C. Grayling, Independent on Sunday 'Thank God for Christopher Hitchens.' Mark Warren, Esquire 'A grand rhetorician' Christopher Hart, Sunday Times 'One of the most formidable polemicists writing in English today.' John Cornwell, The Tablet 'If you are... invited to debate with Christopher Hitchens, decline. His witty repartee, his ready-access store of historical quotations, his bookish eloquence, his effortless flow of well-formed words... would threaten your arguments even if you had good ones to deploy.' Richard Dawkins, TLS"
