Ȭ Early reader series 㼇 Book By Christopher Hitchens ᒓ Ȭ Early reader series 㼇 Book By Christopher Hitchens ᒓ An Best Book of December 2015 What a tragic irony that in this era of surreptitious videotaping, political posturing and runaway media, we no longer have the brilliant Christopher Hitchens to decipher it all for us The award winning essayist many say polemicist and mean it as a compliment died of esophageal cancer in 2011 But if we can only speculate as to what Hitchens would have to say about the world in 2015, we at least can read these collected essays, some already published, some not at his death, it is said that he left nearly 250,000 words of as yet unpublished essays Whether old or new to us, the pieces collected here are funny and wry and searingly intelligent not a single nuance or nanosecond of phoniness slips by Hitch Whether analyzing the romanticization of revered Cuban revolutionary leader Che Guevara, or remarking that the conservative pundit Pat Buchanan is a faux bonhomme, Hitchens quietly astounds us still with his characteristic combination of erudition and commonality Reading Hitchens was always a wry, witty pleasure now that hes gone, its like having a wonderful dream, a nocturnal visit from a beloved, brilliant friend Sara NelsonChristopher Hitchens is sorely missed, And Yet, reading his new book a bounty of famous scalps, thunder blasted targets, and a few love letters is such a powerful reminder of the late V.F contributing editor and notorious provocateur in chiefs erudite and scathing assessments of American culture, its almost as if hes here Vanity Fair A very good new collectionThe best reason to read And Yet may be its inclusion of a three part essay, On the Limits of Self Improvement, that Mr Hitchens wrote for Vanity Fair about trying to get himself in shape It is as hilarious as it is wise, and I predict it will be published before long as its own pocket size book The moment when Mr Hitchens undergoes the male version of a Brazilian bikini wax has yet to be recognized, but surely will be, as among the funniest passages in this countrys literature Dwight Garner, New York Times Dazzling,

Seattle Times Hitchens leaves a trail of brilliant, brawling and provocative quotes and ideas to consider, admire or deplore USA Today 3.5 4 stars This hefty collection of pieces shows no falling off from his previous collections Hitchens was that rare critic who, like Irving Howe or Dwight MacDonald, wrote seriously and well about both politics and literature, combining strong intellectual beliefs with fine aesthetic taste and judgmentEverything Hitchens touches is treated in a style thats actively probing, often fiercely critical, but always infused with ironic wit Boston Globe Whether his subject is Charles Dickens or Arthur Schlesinger, Ian Fleming or Mikhail Lermontov, Hitchens always manages to fit a dense dose of research and reference into an essay without overburdening it Though the subjects in this collection are heterogeneous something does unify the pieces the raging, querulous, eloquent voice of a restless, wide ranging critic Chicago Tribune And Yet Essays by
