Mortality by Christopher Hitchens


My rating: 3.5

This is the 18 month story, from diagnosis to death, of Christopher Hitchens' battle with esophageal cancer.  His career and his personality were so incredibly powerful.  Like others, I am wowed and still absorbing this book.  Raw, honest, open and most amazing of all, objective.  How he talks about the "victimhood" that he would blame others who would say things that were true but felt he had the ownership on it.  So real.

I wish I could have known him.
