About the Author:

CHRISTOPHER HITCHENS is the author of four collections of essays.  

ROBERT ATWAN has been the series editor of The Best American Essays since its inception in 1986. He has edited numerous literary anthologies and written essays and reviews for periodicals nationwide.

From Publishers Weekly:

Starred Review. This collection is satisfying in its unexpected diversity and tasty juxtapositions--from Garry Wills' s conservative apostasy to Matt Labash' s surprising portrait of Washington, D.C., mayor Marion Barry, Walter Isaacson' s look at how Einstein divided American Zionism to Steven L. Isenberg' s recollections of his encounters with four British superstar writers when he was a fledgling New York editor. Elif Batuman gives an offbeat report on speculation about how Tolstoy died, and Zadie Smith looks at Obama, Shakespeare, and the expression of inner conflict between cultures. And what essay collection would be complete without one on the godfather of the form, Michel de Montaigne, in a piece by Jane Kramer? The sources are as diverse as the subjects: the Alaska Quarterly, American Scholar, Harvard Review, Oregon Humanities, and the Weekly Standard. Every reader will come away delighted and enlightened.
