Book of the Week

A Hitch in Time


As befits the great contrarian, this selection of Christopher Hitchens’s writings for the London Review of Books is full of contrasts. Here’s Desert Storm, but also P.G. Wodehouse. Here are Nixon, Kissinger and Clinton, but also Princess Margaret and an anecdote about being spanked by Mrs Thatcher. Discover the Hitch you only thought you knew…
