Hitch 22
Mike Rappaport

I have to admit being interested in reading this memoir by Christopher Hitchens.  Take a look at these last few lines of the book's review:

A generous friend, Mr. Hitchens gives most of his book’s good lines (and there are many, a good deal of them unprintable here) to the people he loves.

Those good lines including this one, from Clive James, who began a review of a Leonid Brezhnev memoir this way: “Here is a book so dull that a whirling dervish could read himself to sleep with it.... If it were read in the open air, birds would fall stunned from the sky.”

Whatever the opposite of that book is, Mr. Hitchens has written it.

According to family legend, his first complete sentence was “Let’s all go and have a drink at the club.”

My daughter's was "Daddy's too fat for his kilt."

You have a kilt? I want a kilt.
