Arguably by Christopher Hitchens

Arguably by Christopher Hitchens newly listed for sale on the exceptional BookLovers of Bath web site!

Published: Atlantic Books, 2011, Hardback in dust wrapper.

From the cover: For over forty years, Christopher Kitchens has proclaimed truth where others have spun falsehood and written, with passionate commitment, on matters that others fear to broach. This volume of essays encompasses Hitchens writing over the past decade on politics, literature and religion.

In Arguably Hitchens explores a wide range of cultural and political issues, past and present. His fresh perceptions of figures as diverse as Charles Dickens, Karl Marx, Rebecca West and Philip Larkin are matched in brilliance by his acerbic discussions and intrepid observations, gathered over a lifetime of travelling and reporting from destinations such as Iran, China and Pakistan.

Hitchens life has above all else been one of defiance and wit, courage and humility: in an age of digital punditry and twenty-four hour hucksterism, he has been a voice of reason amid the clamour, making an indelible mark on politics and literature on both sides of the Atlantic. Arguably is the indispensible companion to the Anglospheres pre-eminent political writer.
