Hitch-22 by Christopher Hitchens
I decided to read Hitch 22 by Christopher Hitchens after he died and so many people that I respect wrote moving obituaries on his life and impact. Since I had little knowledge or familiarity with him and his view, other than his fame as an atheist, I decided to learn a little bit more about him by reading his autobiography.
It felt too “inside baseball” and I was unable to relate to much of it. He’s a British intellectual and many of the things and people he casually refers to are unknowns to me.
Additionally, although I realize it is an autobiography, it felt way too narcissistic, even for that genre.
