Christopher Hitchens

Tonight in front of the local Rite Aid, not far from where Christopher Hitchens lived, there was an array of books on the sidewalk that were up for grabs. The titles reflected books one imagines lined Hitchens’s library. It was only when I came home that I learned he passed away. I couldn’t help but wonder if the books were his or if it was merely a timely coincidence?

What do you think? Here’s a sample of the books in need of a new home:

The Almanac of American History by Arthur Schlesinger, Jr.

Contemporary Political Philosophy: An Introduction by Will Hymlicka

The Triumph of Politics: Why the Reagan Revolution Failed by David A. Stockman

God in the White House: A History by Randall Balmer
