it was amazing
Read from August 22 to 23, 2012

In this booklet, composed of his articles in Vanity Fair, Christopher Hitchens tells us about his year of "living dyingly," guiding us into Tumortown. Even when facing death, Hitchens keeps his cool, arguing about God and religion, reporting the slowly degradation of his body, and sharing his fears of loosing his capability to write. He does not evade the harshness of being deadly ill and he reveals the painfull treatments and the reality of knowingly dying.
This is not a comfy read but it is a terrifying good book.
