Christopher Hitchens’ Final Vanity Fair Essay

Today Vanity Fair published Christopher Hitchens‘ final essay for the magazine, an inspiring tribute to Charles Dickens.

The journalist and author passed away last month after a battle with cancer. If Hitchens’ tribute to a great author inspires you to read some books, follow this link to download free eBooks from Charles Dickens.

Here’s an excerpt: “It is all there to emphasize the one central and polar and critical point that Dickens wishes to enjoin on us all: whatever you do—hang on to your childhood! He was true to this in his fashion, both in ways that delight me and in ways that do not. He loved the idea of a birthday celebration, being lavish about it, reminding people that they were once unborn and are now launched. This is bighearted, and we might all do a bit more of it.”
