Hitchens v. Cancer

Whatever else may be objectionable about him—and there’s been not a little to appall over the years—Christopher Hitchens’s latest essay on the barbaric invader that’s laid siege to his body and refuses to be defeated will knock the breath right out of you with its bare fortitude and luminous, dazzling, incomparable prose. No need to be on a first-name basis with that cell-multiplying monster to appreciate this great piece of writing.
