Tip of the Day: ‘Mortality’

by Eubie on September 19, 2013

Mortality by Chris HitchensIn June 2010, writer Christopher Hitchens was diagnosed with esophageal cancer, which took his life a year-and-a-half later. A few months after the big reveal, he began writing what would turn out to be seven columns for Vanity Fair magazine, later collected into a thin volume aptly titled Mortality (published posthumously in 2012). For those of you unfamiliar with Mr. Hitchens and his work, first, ‘shame on you!’ and second, not to worry. You can start with this, his last book and final thoughts on his own finality. Read it today, or tomorrow, or some day in the not-too-distant future… but read it! The man had a gift for language and the sharpest of minds, and this book is the best we’ve ever read to help us get ready, and we all will one day need to be ready.
