Calling all Christopher Hitchens fan! This audiobook is essential for you! A conversation between Christopher Hitchens and Salman Rushdie is recorded in front of a live audience, but with the intimacy of a private talk. Subtly funny, political, and eye-opening. Salman Rushdie probes Hitchens on his "eclectic dislikes", his political views, and his adventures as a foreign correspondent. Whether you've read or are about to read Hitchens' final memoir, Hitch 22, this audiobook will broaden and deepen your reading experience, as well as answer some of the questions you yourself might have for Hitchens.
Over the course of his 60 years, Christopher Hitchens has been a citizen of both the United States and the United Kingdom. He has been both a socialist opposed to the war in Vietnam and a supporter of the U.S. war against Islamic extremism in Iraq. He has been both a foreign correspondent in some of the world's most dangerous places and a legendary bon vivant. He is a fervent atheist, raised as a Christian, by a mother whose Jewish heritage was not revealed to him until her suicide. He has now written a searing memoir entitled, Hitch 22 that lays bare these many contradictions and affirms his conviction that all personal is also political. Christopher Hitchens is a contributing editor to Vanity Fair and a visiting professor of liberal studies at the New School. He is the author of numerous books, including works on Thomas Jefferson, Thomas Paine, George Orwell, Mother Teresa, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Henry Kissinger and his #1 New York Times bestseller and National Book Award nominee, God Is Not Great.
