Description

The final literary act of the late Christopher Hitchens was to write an attack on G. K. Chesterton, whom he could not forgive for refusing to embrace atheism. Our examination of their post-mortal dust-up will reveal both the nature of Hitchens' complaint and the ways Chesterton might have responded to it.
