Summary
Christopher Hitchens is one of the most noticed and debated public intellectuals of our time. Hitch-22 tells of his complex and warm relationship with his late mother (whose Jewish heritage he discovered only after her suicide), his formative experiences as a socialist and activist, and the authors who shaped his intellect (from Evelyn Waugh and P.G. Wodehouse, to Karl Marx and Richard Llewelyn). -- Derived from book jacket
