Hitchens new memoir on the front page of the Sunday Times Book Review

as with most of the reviews, there is a minor ache for the book to have been more literary than political memoir (i.e. divorces and subsequent or preceding cocktail hours with Salman and Martin), coupled with a general understanding that even with Hitchens’s rhetorical spirit: reconciliation can be hard to do.

I must add that Hitchens wrote the introduction to our little collection of H.P. Lovecraft’s atheist writings; I’m obliged.
