Yesterday, while visiting a nearby Barnes & Noble, I purchased Mortality, a collection of essays and final writings from atheist author and speaker, the late Christopher Hitchens. The essays follow his cancer diagnosis in 2010. It hit book store shelves Tuesday, September 4th, so if you're just finding out you're not far behind the curve!
As I hold the book, a choking sense of sadness grips my chest. I only intend to read it under the most appropriate conditions on my upcoming vacation. I will be posting a review of the book soon, but don't wait for me, go out and purchase it for yourself.
