That Hitchens Person

Everytime I read an article about Christopher Hitchens like this or come across anything about his book “God Is Not Great”, I can’t help but think of the following passage from the opening pages of “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy”,

Not only is [the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy] a wholly remarkable book, it is also a highly successful one–more popular than the Celestial Home Care Omnibus, better selling than Fifty-three More Things to Do in Zero Gravity, and more controversial than Oolon Coluphid’s trilogy of philosophical blockbusters, Where God Went Wrong, Some More of God’s Greatest Mistakes and Who Is This God Person Anyway?

and I feel absolutely no need to read anything by that Hitchens person anyway. I’m sure the “Hitchhiker’s Guide” sells much better than “God Is Not Great.”
