Hitchens’ Publicist: ‘Travel Is Impossible For Personal Reasons’
Author Christopher Hitchens’ publicist has informed True/Slant that “travel is impossible right now for personal reasons,” but that Hitchens is eager to get back on the “circuit and will be doing so soon.”
Representatives at bookstores where Hitchens was slated to appear have also informed T/S that the cancellations were due to “personal matters.”
More on this as it develops.
UPDATE: Calls to the Hitchens residence in Washington have been met with a busy signal for more than hour.
UPDATE #2: Another appearance is cancelled, this one on July 8th in Houston – that’s nearly two weeks from today.
UPDATE #3: Hitchens’ home phone has now been busy for the better part of four hours, indicating it may have been disconnected or taken off the hook.
