With one exception, I think I have enjoyed everything Christopher Hitchens has written. It's hardly a surprise that he has been diagnosed with cancer of the throat, given his love of a smoke. Anyway, there's a touching and warm profile on "Hitch" in today's Observer by Andrew Anthony. I'm looking forward to reading Hitch 22 next week, it has happily vanished from my Amazon birthday list. More than that, I hope he makes a full recovery. God bless him.
