When Christopher met Peter
Guardian brings estranged Hitchens brothers together to discuss sibling rivalry, politics and reconciliation. When questioned whether they two are friends:
Peter Hitchens: No. There was an old joke in East Germany that went, Are the Russians our friends or our brothers? And the answer is, they must be our brothers because you can choose your friends.
Christopher Hitchens: The great thing about family life is that it introduces you to people you'd otherwise never meet.
