Vanity Fair In Memoriam: Christopher Hitchens, 1949--2011, by Juli Weiner, Dec 15th 2011. 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. He died in their presence, too, at the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas. May his 62 years of living, well, so livingly console the many of us who will miss him dearly
On the 4th of Feb. 2009 the English-American author and journalist gave a talk on his book "God is Not Great"

"The Village Voice is an English-language bookshop in Saint-Germain-des-Prés, the heart of literary Paris. Since 1982, we have promoted the books we love, those that seem essential to a better understanding of the world we live in, and have hosted readings by some of the most important contemporary authors. [...] (It's) the neighbourhood where the great American writers and artists of the 20th century held their salons; Gertrude Stein, a couple of streets away from Saint-Sulpice, Sylvia Beach, whose bookshop was on rue de l'Odéon, and Natalie Barney, priestess of the most renowned salon of the time, rue Jacob. When Henry Miller revised his novel Tropic of Cancer in the 1930's, he was living in a hotel at 4, rue Princesse. Remember to take a look at our large selection of books on Paris as a cultural magnet for generations of American writers and artists"
