Christopher Hitchens

So sorry to read that Christopher Hitchens died yesterday. He was a brilliant writer. I've enjoyed many of his essays, but I think his recent Vanity Fair series on his illness* was a special achievement, lifting the veil on being sick and dying. I trust he had no deathbed conversion.

Further updates to this post are likely, once I'm through this busy day and the weekend has arrived...

*Here's the list:
The Topic of Cancer
Unanswerable Prayers
Miss Manners and the Big C
Unspoken Truths
Trial of the Will
