Christopher Hitchens—the incomparable critic, masterful rhetorician, fiery wit, and fearless bon vivant—died yesterday at the age of 62.
It has been so sad to read his articles every month in Vanity Fair knowing each one could be his last but the man never lost his sense of humor. For the past year he has been fighting cancer and he brought readers on every step of the journey.
Christopher also wrote for Slate and Gladys sent over a link to a best of Christopher Hitchens from there. You can read it here. RIP.
