Hitch on Cancer

Posted By Michael Craig Miller, M.D. On August 20, 2010

Thanks to my friend and colleague, Christopher Lovett, PhD, for alerting me to the vivid piece that Christopher Hitchens wrote about his cancer diagnosis. It appears in the September 2010 issue of Vanity Fair.

Hitchens is a banality-basher. The value of his piece is in his detailed account — the particularity of his experience comes through. A good read for anyone who thinks about mortality. Does anyone not?
