Updike’s "Terrorist"

Christopher Hitchens writes what might be the perfect example of a book review, that is, if you want to do harm to the book and great pain to the author, in this case John Updike. Too bad, but you can’t get the whole thing on line. Worth the price for the paper copy of the current Atlantic.

Did you hear his "debate" with Stephen Fry on the Brit’s blasphemy law, available through The Guardian? It is scarcely a debate since they both take the same side of the question. Well, sort of. Fry is for civlity and Hitchens fora violent response to Islamic Terror. It is interesting and funny. Hitchens is alternately tremendously engaging and infuriatingly puerile. However, he is very complimenary of our founding fathers, which is fun to hear from an event sponsored by The Guardian
