Over the course of his 60 years, Christopher Hitchens has been a citizen of the United States and the United Kingdom. He has been a socialist opposed to the war in Vietnam and a supporter of the U.S. war against Islamic extremism in Iraq. He has been both a foreign correspondent in some of the world's most dangerous places and a legendary bon vivant with an unquenchable thirst for alcohol and literature. He is a fervent atheist, raised as a Christian, by a mother whose Jewish heritage was not revealed to him until her suicide. ??In other words, Christopher Hitchens contains multitudes. And he believes the personal is political.?? This is the story of his life, lived large.
