Christopher Hitchens is one of my favorite authors and journalists.
The Brit-American's career has spanned more than four decades, making him a public intellectual, and a staple of lecture circuits and talk shows - notably HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher."
He has been a columnist and literary critic at The Atlantic, Slate, World Affairs, The Nation and Free Inquiry. Of late, he's a contributing editor and columnist for Vanity Fair. His latest book is entitled "Hitch-22: A Memoir," and was published this month.
In the video below, he's not talking about finding mass graves in Iraq, the Middle East arms race or the growing rebellion in Iran.
Nope... he addresses something far more personal and interesting.
