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 with an unquenchable thirst for alcohol and literature. He is a fervent atheist, raised as a Christian, by a mother whose Jewish heritage was not revealed to him until her suicide. In other words, Christopher Hitchens contains multitudes. He sees all sides of an argument. And he believes the personal is political. This is the story of his life, lived large.

Chronik des eigenen Todes Nachdem Christopher Hitchens die Diagnose seiner tödlichen Krankheit erhalten hatte, schrieb er, die von Elisabeth Kübler-Ross etablierte Theorie der verschiedenen Stufen des Sterbens träfe auf ihn nicht zu. Anfangs hätte er zwar seinen Zustand geleugnet, dann Zorn und Depression aber übersprungen: »Ich habe den Sensenmann herausgefordert, es mir so richtig zu zeigen – und muss nun vor etwas kapitulieren, das so vorhersehbar und banal ist, dass es selbst mich langweilt.« Zeit seines Lebens war Christopher Hitchens ein scharfzüngiger Redner und erbarmungsloser Diskutant in politischen und weltanschaulichen Debatten. Wenn er zur Hochform auflief, waren ihm auch die gewandtesten Gegner nicht mehr gewachsen. Der gebürtige Brite lehrte seine Wahlheimat USA in den drei Jahrzehnten, in denen er dort lebte, das Fürchten, indem er deren Kriegsverbrechen und Bigotterie an den Pranger stellte wie niemand sonst. Während der Lesereise zu seiner Autobiographie Hitch 22 hatte Christopher Hitchens einen Zusammenbruch, der mit unerträglichen Schmerzen in der Brust einherging. Die Ärzte diagnostizierten Speiseröhrenkrebs. Diese Diagnose war, wie er später schrieb, seine »Deportation vom Land der Gesunden über die klar gezogene Grenze, die das Gelände der Krankheit davon trennt«. Was als ein Schreiben über die Krankheit beginnt, wird zu Hitchens’ letztem Buch, ein Text über das Leiden und Sterben, über den eigenen Tod.

The Hitch: das bewegte Leben eines der einflussreichsten und streitbarsten Denker Ikonen von ihrem Sockel zu stürzen ist ein Anliegen, das Christopher Hitchens mit der Nonchalance eines Salonlöwen und der Unerbittlichkeit eines Rottweilers verfolgt – wie seine Biografien über Mutter Teresa, Henry Kissinger und Bill Clinton beweisen. Jetzt hinterfragt der Bestsellerautor, Journalist, Bonvivant und Provokateur seinen eigenen, fast schon ikonenhaften Status als „wahrscheinlich klügster Kopf seiner Generation“ (DIE WELT). In seiner Autobiografie tritt „The Hitch” selbst ungeschminkt vor den Spiegel. Wie ein britischer Trotzkist, in der ersten Reihe der Vietnamkriegsgegner, nach dem 11. September die amerikanische Staatsbürgerschaft annimmt und bis heute zu den prominentesten und umstrittensten Befürwortern des Irakkriegs zählt. Wie der zum christlichen Glauben erzogene Sohn einer freigeistigen Mutter, die bis zu ihrem Selbstmord ihre jüdische Herkunft geheim hielt, seine atheistischen Ansichten zum Weltbestseller macht. Wie ein auf Kuba kaffeepflückender junger Linksintellektueller gegen das Establishment anstürmt und sich beim Cocktail mit Margaret Thatcher wiederfindet. „The Hitch” ist die Roadmap für ein Leben, das nichts, wirklich nichts ausgelassen hat.

Three of the most provocative and thought-provoking works of the great Christopher Hitchens, now available in one volume. god Is Not Great This provocative international bestseller is the ultimate case against religion. In a series of acute readings of the major religious texts, Christopher Hitchens demonstrates the ways in which religion is man-made, dangerously sexually repressive and distorts the very origins of the cosmos. Above all, Hitchens argues that the concept of an omniscient God has profoundly damaged humanity, and proposes that the world might be a great deal better off without 'him'. Hitch-22 The hilarious and provocative bestselling memoirs of our greatest contrarian are 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. Arguably For forty years, Christopher Hitchens was at the epicentre of the battle of letters in Britain & America. Throughout his life he shone the light of reason and truth into the eyes of charlatans and hucksters, exposing falsehood and decrying hypocrisy wherever he found it. Arguably collects Hitchens' writing on politics, literature and religion when he was at the zenith of his career.

'Revisiting this selection of diaries and essay-reviews from the London Review of Books is restorative, an extended spa treatment that stretches tired brains and unkinks the usual habitual responses where Hitchens is concerned.' James Wolcott in his introduction Christopher Hitchens was a star writer wherever he wrote, and the same was true of the London Review of Books, to which he contributed sixty pieces over two decades. Anthologised here for the first time, this selection of his finest LRB reviews, diaries and essays (along with a smattering of ferocious letters) finds Hitchens at his very best. Familiar bêtes noires - Kennedy, Nixon, Kissinger, Clinton - rub shoulders with lesser-known preoccupations: P.G. Wodehouse, Princess Margaret and, magisterially, Isaiah Berlin. Here is Hitchens on the (first) Gulf War and the 'Salman Rushdie Acid Test', on being spanked by Mrs Thatcher in the House of Lords and taking his son to the Oscars, on America's homegrown Nazis and 'Acts of Violence in Grosvenor Square' in 1968. Edited by the London Review of Books, with an introduction by James Wolcott, this collection recaptures, ten years after his death, 'a Hitch in time': barnstorming, cauterising, and ultimately uncontainable.
