Summary In this sparkling engagement with novels and their authors, Hitchens shows that while the encounter between writers and those in power is not always smooth, it generally embodies a dialectic that is well worth pursuit. Here, Hitchens scrutinizes Norman Mailer and Gore Vidal's encounters with American revolution, appraises the "fatwah" issued against Salman Rushdie, and more.
