Christopher Hitchens

A really excellent interview/review of Christopher Hitchens and his memoir, “Hitch-22”:

“He could never have guessed how prescient those words would be. In June last year, while on a tour of America to promote the hardback publication of his book, Hitchens was taken ill in New York and was subsequently diagnosed with cancer of the oesophagus. Thus did he acquire his visa to a place where nothing can be taken for granted. Hitchens has christened it ‘Tumourville’.” (from “Godless in Tumourville: Christopher Hitchens interview“)
