A journalist, author, critic and debater, Hitchens is one of those distinctly British intellectuals who seems to have read everything and forgotten nothing.

In his columns, essays and books, in his speeches and impromptu public appearances, he is incapable of uttering or writing a boring sentence.

Reading and listening to Christopher Hitchens has helped me emancipate myself from´╗┐ a geographically inherited virus of the mind, known more widely as Christianity.
