Publisher's Summary

In this long-awaited and candid memoir, Hitchens re-traces the footsteps of his life to date, from his childhood in Portsmouth, with his adoring, tragic mother and reserved Naval officer father; to his life in Washington DC, the base from which from he would launch fierce attacks on tyranny of all kinds. Along the way, he recalls the girls, boys and booze; the friendships and the feuds; the grand struggles and lost causes; and the mistakes and misgivings that have characterised his life.
Hitch-22 is, by turns, moving and funny, charming and infuriating, enraging and inspiring. It is an indispensable companion to the life and thought of our pre-eminent political writer.
Narrated by Christopher Hitchens himself shortly before his untimely death, this is a poignant listening experience.

hitchs tells his story

it's more a summary of his work than an intimate biography. remains mostly aloof. his distaste for audiobooks is reflected in his narration, to the point that at times its inaudible. but I'd prefer this over anybody else.
