like me, this book is indispensable
on 6 March 2017
This collection of late Hitchens' writing is divided by subjects (literature, politics, miscellaneous, etc). If you are a fan, like me, this book is indispensable. Even when you don't agree with the ideas of Hitch, you're forced to admire the strength of his arguments - a man that advices you to "seek out argument and disputation for their own sake". Wether talking about Wodehouse's books or writing about the fascism in North Korea, Christopher Hitchens masters the rhetoric and, mainly, exposes his ideas with an envious transparency that makes you want to transcript his text word-by-word just to learn how to do it. I use to underline my favorite excerpts of a book. This one, I must say, is thoroughly underlined.
