Christopher Hitchens – A life lived. The Paxman interview

Christopher Hitchens—the incomparable critic, masterful rhetorician, fiery wit, and fearless bon vivant—died today at the age of 62. Hitchens was diagnosed with esophageal cancer in the spring of 2010, just after the publication of his memoir, Hitch-22, and began chemotherapy soon after.

“My chief consolation in this year of living dyingly has been the presence of friends,” he wrote in the June 2011 issue of Vanity Fair.

Author, journalist and champion of the “new atheism” movement – he gave this interview to Newsnight’s Jeremy Paxman.
