Christopher Hitchens on ’60 Minutes’

Author, Vanity Fair columnist and former cable news mainstay Christopher Hitchens discusses his battle with stage 4 esophageal cancer tonight on “60 Minutes.”

“I am a member of a cancer elite. I rather look down on people with lesser cancers,” jokes Hitchens with correspondent Steve Kroft.

The author of “God is not Great” tells Kroft about his diagnosis just nine months ago: “I was very afraid it would stop me writing. And I was really petrified with fear about that because I thought that would, among all things, diminish my will to live because…being a writer’s what I am rather than what I do.”

Kroft’s interview airs tonight on “60 Minutes.”
