1. Hitch 22
2. God Is Not Great
Hitch-22 is the candid memoir of one of the world's most influential public intellectuals: Christopher Hitchens. He retraces the footsteps of his life to date, recalling the girls, boys and booze; the friendships and the feuds; the grand struggles and lost causes; and the mistakes and misgivings that have characterized his life. Hitch-22 is, by turns, moving and funny, charming and infuriating, enraging and inspiring; an indispensable companion to the life and thought of a pre-eminent political writer.
God Is Not Great
Christopher Hitchens makes the ultimate case against religion. In a series of acute readings of the major religious texts, he demonstrates the ways in which religion is
man-made, dangerously sexually repressive and distorts the very origins of the cosmos. With eloquent clarity, Hitchens frames the argument for a more secular life based on science and reason, in which hell is replaced by the Hubble Telescope's awesome view of the universe and Moses and the burning bush give way to the beauty and symmetry of the double helix. God Is Not Great marvels at the possibility of society without
religion, arguing that the concept of an omniscient God has profoundly damaged humanity. Hitchens proposes instead that the world might be a great deal better off
During the American book tour to promote his memoir, Hitch-22, Christopher Hitchens collapsed in his hotel room with excruciating pain in his chest. Over the next year he
experienced the full force of modern cancer treatment. Mortality is at once an unsparingly honest account of the ravages of his disease, an examination of cancer etiquette and the coda to a lifetime of fierce debate and peerless prose. In this moving personal account of illness, Hitchens confronts his own death - and he is combative and dignified, eloquent and witty to the very last.
