"An extended spa treatment that stretches tired brains and unkinks the usual habitual responses where Hitchens is concerned." --James Wolcott in his introduction

An outstanding new collection, A HITCH IN TIME is a must have for Hitchens completists and the perfect starting point for understanding one of the most brilliant essayists of all time.

Anthologized here for the first time, A HITCH IN TIME is a choice selection of Christopher Hitchens's finest reviews, diary entries and essays - along with a smattering of ferocious letters. Familiar bêtes noires--Kennedy, Nixon, Kissinger, Clinton--rub shoulders with lesser-known preoccupations: P.G. Wodehouse, Princess Margaret and, magisterially, Isaiah Berlin. A HITCH IN TIME is a banquet of entertaining stories ranging from his thoughts on Salman Rushdie to being spanked by Margaret Thatcher in The House of Lords and the night he took his son to the Oscars. The broad scope and high caliber of Hitchens' essays allows his work to transcend the occasion for which it was written and continues to be essential reading.

Along with an introduction by James Wolcott, A HITCH IN TIME recaptures the brilliance of Hitchens - barnstorming, cauterizing, and ultimately uncontainable.
