Christopher Hitchens

Controversial author and essayist Christopher Hitchens, 62, has finally lost his battle with cancer, which he documented with brio, as was his wont, writing: "I personally want to ‘do’ death in the active and not the passive, and to be there to look it in the eye and be doing something when it comes for me.”

Here's the NYT, Andrew SullivanThe Daily Beast. The Guardian and
a column from Newsweek and The Daily Beast.
