Hitchens, Christopher

Audiobook CD - 2012
Average Rating: 4 stars out of 5.
Throughout the course of his ordeal battling esophageal cancer, Hitchens adamantly and bravely refused the solace of religion, preferring to confront death with both eyes open. In a 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.

Turning his own impending death into an opportunity to explore life and find meaning there...amazing. Terrifically inspiring and tremendously moving.
