    Story
    (294)

    Throughout the course of his ordeal battling esophageal cancer, Christopher Hitchens adamantly and bravely refused the solace of religion, preferring to confront death with both eyes open. In this riveting account of his affliction, Hitchens poignantly describes the torments of illness, discusses its taboos, and explores how disease transforms experience and changes our relationship to the world around us. By turns personal and philosophical, Hitchens embraces the full panoply of human emotions as cancer invades his body and compels him to grapple with the enigma of death.

    Darwin8u says: "Death IS the DARK backing"
    "Hitchins is a great thinker and writer"

    Would you try another book from Christopher Hitchens and/or Simon Prebble?

    Yes


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I was intrigued by what Hitch might have to say on Mortality specifically, but this was more of a collection of essays on his struggles with treatment rather than a cohesive thesis on mortality itself.
