Hitch-22, a memoir

Hitch-22, a memoir begins with an erroneous death notice that gives Christopher Hitchens a tongue-in-cheek way to begin the examination of his life.

After he describes the premature death notice and muses on his own extinction, Hitchens reveals that he is/was a non-bomb throwing radical, a non-artiste of the homosexual stripe and a non-complicated man with a complicated set of life circumstances (a mother who committed suicide and a taciturn father who was a part of the Royal Navy).
