Book club: "Mortality"­ by Christopher Hitchens (HAAM members only)

"While handling success with grace and humility is a rare trait, the truer measure of a man is how he deals with adversity. In facing the ultimate travail, one’s certain death, Christopher Hitchens displays a stoicism worthy of Marcus Aurelius in "Mortality". A collection of his last essays for Vanity Fair before his death in December 2011, Mortality exhibits both the wry wit that made Hitchens a favoured author and the British reserve that tempers his chronicle of a body ravaged by terrible disease."
