Christopher Hitchens was unable to make it to the studio last week because of an unfortunate incident involving a paperweight and a letter opener.* Today is the day we finally get to talk to him about Thomas Paine's Rights of Man, as part of the Atlantic Monthly Press series Books That Changed the World. All you literary aficionados out there, tell us: what book changed your world?

* This is not true at all. I actually have no idea why he was MIA.

UPDATE, at 2:49 p.m. EDT: We just got word from our director.... "Hitch is in the building."
