Talk:Christopher Hitchens bibliography

Two sentences out of one.[edit]

The opening paragraph has a sentence that needs breaking up. It reads as if a career that "spanned more than four decades" had the result of "making him a public intellectual." There have been plenty of writers with a career of that length who became neither public figures or showed themselves to be intellectuals. Hitchens was an intellectual and was recognized as a public one, but the passage of time isn't what did it.

I'm going to break this into two sentences that don't change the thrust of the statement.JWorkman 18:40, 9 February 2013 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by James K. Workman (talkcontribs)
