Christopher Hitchens


Christopher Hitchens, 1949-2011

We are deeply saddened by today's news announcing the death of Christopher Hitchens. McClelland & Stewart has had the great fortune of working with Christopher as his Canadian publisher for his most recent books, including the #1 international bestseller god is Not Great; Hitch-22: A Memoir; Arguably: Essays, named one of the 10 Best Books of 2011 by the New York Times, and a #1 Canadian bestseller; and a forthcoming memoir to be published in 2012, Mortality, based on a series of award-winning essays published in Vanity Fair about his ordeal with cancer. Christopher dealt with his illness as he did his life leading up to it: with wit, insight, incredible intellectual productivity, and extreme courage. We are all terribly saddened by his passing—his was an incredible life cut short and we send his family our heart-felt regrets and sympathy. We are honoured to be his publishers, and in that role to have brought and continue to bring his work to Canadian readers. He will be missed but his great and inspiring legacy will live on.
