Characteristic of his elegant wit: philosophical, literary, ironic, sardonic, reflective and resentful * The Times * His unworldly fluency never deserted him, his commitment was passionate, and he never deserted his trade. He was the consummate writer, the brilliant friend. In Walter Pater's famous phrase, he burned 'with this hard gem-like flame.' Right to the end. -- Ian McEwan Hitchens's voice remains civilised, searching and ready to vanquish all his enemies -- Colm Tobin A trenchant, learned, iconoclastic and splendidly witty commentator on public life and, as here, on his own private triumphs and travails... unremittingly elegant, a master of graceful prose -- John Banville
