Description

Ever wonder how Christopher Hitchens became Christopher Hitchens? English-born and American by adoption, Hitchens is one of the most captivating (and sometimes controversial) literary journalists working today. He has traveled to some of the world’s most dangerous places including Iran, Iraq and North Korea and recently publically criticized the Vatican for the sex abuse scandal involving children.

Upon turning 60, Hitchens traced his family lineage and offers an intimate glimpse into his fascinating life including his friendships with writers James Fenton, Martin Amis, Salman Rushdie and Ian McEwan.
