Synopsis

Christopher Hitchens was arguably the most erudite, provocative, and polarizing writers of the last 25 years. When he passed away in 2011 from esophageal cancer, writers, readers, listeners, pundits and critics the world over mourned his loss. AND YET... brings together some of the finest essays Hitchens published over the last two decades for the first time in book form, addressing the controversial subjects he is best known for, with characteristic wit and erudition, including: the case against God, faith and religious observance; the case for intervention in Iraq and Iran; jabs at towering political figures like Bill Clinton, Henry Kissinger, and dictators and tyrants the world over; celebrations of the pleasures of drinking, and of the writers whose lives and work most influenced his own, such as Saul Bellow, George Orwell, Thomas Jefferson, Thomas Paine, and his dear friends Martin Amis and Salman Rushdie, among others.
