Christopher Eric Hitchens (13 April 1949 – 15 December 2011) was a British-American [ 7 ] [ 8 ] author and journalist whose career spanned more than four decades. [ 9 ] Hitchens, often referred to colloquially as "Hitch", [ 10 ] contributed to New Statesman , The Nation , The Atlantic , The London Review of Books , The Times Literary Supplement , Slate Magazine , Free Inquiry and Vanity Fair .
The problem is that if you’re a public figure, especially a writer as extravagantly colorful and prolific as Hitchens (he’s written 11 books, 4 pamphlets and 4 collections of essays, and today appears regularly in Slate, The Atlantic Monthly and Vanity Fair), you may scarcely be aware of how much of your own store of tales has dribbled out over the years, like a sack of flour with a small hole in it. This makes the business of writing your memoir much harder.
