In this discussion of novels and their authors, Hitchens takes inspiration from Shelley's description of the poet as an "unacknowledged legislator" and shows that, while the encounter between writers and those in power is not always smooth, it generally embodies a dialectic that is well worth pursuit. Hitchens provides evidence that his own sallies as a political journalist, deployed with the publication of "No One Left to Lie To", are nourished by a close engagement with a broad sweep of novelists. Here, Norman Mailer and Gore Vidal's encounters with American revolution are scrutinized in interview; George Orwell's role as a fulcrum between left and right is carefully weighed and an appraisal of the fatwah issued against Salman Rushdie becomes a meditation on the West's misunderstood encounter with Islam.
