    Hitch Still on Job

    By kyle | January 6, 2012

    Who says there’s no life after death? Well, Christopher Hitchens, for one, but since his demise he’s remained a lively essayist. Here he is with a Charles Dickens bicentennial piece. He’s still got at least one more piece to run, not to mention a forthcoming memoir.

      I was shocked to find out he was a switch hitter.

      ‘,took the Greatest Birthday Ever Told and helped make it into the near Ramadan of protracted obligatory celebration now darkening our Decembers.’

      That is the quintessential Hitchens, I must say….

      What’s this other piece you speak of? Other than the “Mortality” memoir.

      Ian McEwan said he was working on a GK Chesterton piece even as he was sliding into unconsciousness with every other sentence. I assume that one will be in The Atlantic.

      Thank you. Will look forward to that one. I was hoping he would get out one last book review, he hasn’t had one since the summer.
