Christopher Hitchens is sort of on the agenda for A&P today. He began his just-in-time memoir Hitch-22 with mention of Julian Barnes's own memoir Nothing to Be Frightened Of, which memorably begins: "I don't believe in God, but I miss Him." Interesting view. But it's not mine, and it definitely was not The Hitch's. He'd have agreed with the novelist's philosopher-brother: "Soppy."
