paperback ISBN 13: 9781843549222 | ISBN 10: 1843549220
The acid, hilarious, confessional, provocative bestselling memoirs of our greatest contrarian, and the author of God Is Not Great.
In this long-awaited and candid memoir, Hitchens re-traces the footsteps of his life to date, from his childhood in Portsmouth, withhis adoring, tragic mother and reserved Naval officer father; to his life in Washington DC, the base from which from he would launch fierceattacks on tyranny of all kinds. Along the way, he recalls the girls, boys and booze; the friendships and the feuds; the grand struggles and lost causes; and the mistakes and misgivings that have characterised his life.
Hitch-22 is, by turns, moving and funny, charming and infuriating, enraging and inspiring. It is an indispensable companion to the life and thought of our pre-eminent political writer.
