Outstanding collections of essays -- spanning a decade or so -- of our most exquisite contempory English prose stylists, now tragically gone. A range of subjects: you'll find something, well, lots of things, you'll love.

As the title indicates, be prepared for some contentious views. I've been reading Hitchens for a few years now and though I don't always agree with him I have never failed to come away with a bit better perspective. I first came to Hitchens because I was researching Thomas Paine, a personality that Hitchens claims would be one of his heroes, if he had heroes that is. These essays touch on numerous subjects from literature to history to politics and (almost) never fail Hitchens own standard of 'never be boring.' Read these and you will be better for it.

An excellent compilation/anthology of recent essays published by that incomparable prose stylist, Mr.Christopher Hitchens in "The Atlantic Monthly","Slate", "Vanity Fair", & a few other outlets. These short pieces range from political, cultural, moral, or just thought-provoking topics. This is a big, hefty volume, good for hours & hours of reading pleasure -- and I do mean 'pleasure'; Mr. Hitchens' literary emissions are delicious, sensuous.

Product details pages Twelve - English 9781455502776 Reviews:
"Review" by , "The essays in Arguably remind us of other dimensions to this singular writer and thinker that are sometimes overshadowed by the range of his political commentary....[I]n reading this collection of his thoughts, immersing yourself in the particular turns of phrase and associations of Hitchens' wit, you suddenly realize something else: You're hearing his voice again."
"Review" by , "Anyone who occasionally opens one of our more serious periodicals has learned that the byline of Christopher Hitchens is an opportunity to be delighted or maddened — possibly both — but in any case not to be missed....His range is extraordinary, both in breadth and altitude. He is as self-confident on the politics of Lebanon as on the ontology of the Harry Potter books....I still find Hitchens one of the most stimulating thinkers and entertaining we have, even when — perhaps especially when — he provokes."
"Review" by , "For now, we may only say that Christopher Hitchens is at the top of his journalistic profession, and this collection commands our respect both for its flair and its ability to give pleasure."
"Review" by , "Opinions are to Christopher Hitchens what oil is to Saudi Arabia. This collection, featuring his liveliest, funniest and most infamous essays....There is a time for the balanced, even-handed and sober approach — but why bother with any of that when you could be reading someone as provocative and impish as Hitchens?"
"Review" by , "Vintage Hitchens. Argumentative and sometimes just barely civil — another worthy collection from this most inquiring of inquirers."
"Synopsis" by , Arguably burnishes Christopher Hitchens' credentials as — to quote Christopher Buckley — our greatest living essayist in the English language.
