it was amazing
bookshelves: memoirs
Read from September 13 to 21, 2010

The English are really different. And they all know one another.

This book is a series of recollections, and riffs on those recollections, by Christopher Hitchens, once a man of the left and still a militanf atheist. Hitchens has become an American citizen and a supporter of the war in Iraq, but he is many other things besides. Full of anecdotes, allusions and opinions, this book is an intriguing self-portrait, fortunately quite literate, of a public intellectual with a restless and inventive mind.

Hitchens now is battling esophageal cancer. I offer up a prayer for his recovery, and a long life, whether or not he believes in the efficacy of such things.

Ken Atheist, I best know him as (or I would say "I believe," but such phrases might annoy him).
