Summary
Courageous, insightful and candid thoughts on malady and mortality from one of our most celebrated writers. This book is the most meditative piece of writing Hitchens has ever produced; at once an unsparingly honest account of the ravages of his disease, an examination of cancer bathroom etiquette, and the coda to a lifetime of fierce debate and peerless prose. In this eloquent confrontation of mortality, Hitchens returns a human face to a disease that has become a contemporary cipher of suffering
Summary
Traces the author's battle with esophageal cancer while he continued to write columns on politics and culture for "Vanity Fair," and describes his personal and philosophical view of life and death
