← Arguably: Essays by Christopher Hitchens

A compendium of past essays is wonderful, but also a sign that the man is not currently writing any new ones. A book like this can be produced by his editor with minimal input from Hitchens (essentially only approval of which essays are chosen and which order they come in.)

This makes me sad because I think it is a sign that he is very very sick and not able to produce.

I'll buy the book of course, but I have an uneasy feeling it may be the last we get from him.

(Hitch, if you're reading this, please know that there are thousands of us out here that care and worry at what seem to be the 'bad signs.')
