L. Mencken, Albert Einstein, Daniel Dennett, Sam Harris, Richard Dawkins, and many others well-known and lesser known. And theyare all set in context and commented upon as only Christopher Hitchens--apolitical and literary journalist extraordinairea (Los Angeles Times)--can. Atheist? Believer? Uncertain? No matter: The Portable Atheist will speak to you and engage you every step of the way.Atheist? Believer? Uncertain?
