From the Publisher
Based on his columns in Vanity Fair that chronicled his
year-and-a-half battle with esophageal cancer, Mortality
is Christopher Hitchens at his most honest and reflective .
Thoughtfully meditating on the harrowing effects of illness and
treatment on the body, and on the impermanence and acceptance of a
life ending, Mortality is Hitchens'' magnum opus, and in
true Hitchens form, he has the last word.
