About the Author

Christopher Hitchens (1949-2011) spent two decades contributing to the London Review ofBooks. He was also a contributing editor to Vanity Fair and a columnist for Slate. He was theauthor of numerous books, including works on Thomas Jefferson, George Orwell, MotherTeresa, Henry Kissinger and Bill and Hillary Clinton, as well as his international bestseller andNational Book Award nominee, god Is Not Great. His memoir, Hitch-22, which was a SundayTimes bestseller, was nominated for the Orwell Prize and was a finalist for the National BookCritics Circle Award. His last book, Mortality, was published in 2012 by Atlantic Books.


And yet... there are few journalists who can match the verve and panache of Hitchens's prose. He mixes the loquaciousness of the barfly with the fluency of the literary artist, and could not pen a dull sentence if he tried.
*Guardian on AND YET...*

The range is remarkable... Literary criticism is often where he shines - the pieces on Orwell and Chesterton, in particular, are alert, nuanced and witty.
*The Financial Times on AND YET*

What you will find in And Yet..., is a body of work that offers some of the most various, nutritious and amusing prose you are likely to encounter, and that stands as a testament to the consolations of a phrase he cherished: litera scripta manet - the written word remains.
*Daily Telegraph on AND YET...*

A must-read for its laugh-out-loud consideration of Ian Fleming, alongside his thoughts on Charles Dickens, Salman Rushdie, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. How sad and dull it will be to follow the next American election without his coruscating commentary.
*GQ on AND YET...*
