"The struggle for a free intelligence has always been a struggle between the ironic and the literal mind." In that struggle, Anglo-American journalist Christopher Hitchens (The Missionary Position; God Is Not Great; Hitch-22) has always been in support of the ironic mind. In book after book, this spirited contrarian has aired his views with a fervency and rhetorical brilliance that has sometimes silenced, at least briefly, his numerous detractors. This thoroughly arresting anthology of his writings reminds one of a quotation he credits to his mother: "The only unforgiveable sin is to be boring." This opus would have made his mom proud. A paperback original.
