by Christopher Hitchens

Displaying his trademark wit, and a rare humility, are Hitchens’ three pieces on ‘The Limits of Self-Improvement’… He’s also capable of thoughtful, restrained responses to emotive subjects.The Independent on Sunday

To read Hitchens is to feel not just that he is before you on the page, but that he has sequestered you for a drink. He is intensely and agreeably present.The Weekly Telegraph

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.The Guardian

And Yet: Essays

Christopher Hitchens was an unparalleled, prolific writer, who raised the polemical essay to a new art form, over a lifetime of thinking and debating the defining issues of our times. As an essayist he contributed to the New StatesmanAtlantic MonthlyLondon Review of BooksTLS and Vanity Fair. Any publication of a volume of Hitchens’ essays was a major event on both sides of the Atlantic. Now comes a volume of Hitchens’ previously uncollected essays, covering the themes that define Hitchens the thinker: literature, religion and politics. These essays remind us, once more, of the fierce, brilliant and trenchant voice of Christopher Hitchens.
