Christopher Hitchens: I’m not ready to die
Journalist and essayist Christopher Hitchens says he isn't ready to meet his maker because he does not want to betray family and friends who will miss him.
The English-American writer was diagnosed with cancer of the oesophagus in June.
The cancer has spread to his lymph nodes, and was possibly brought on by his “bohemian and rackety life”, the 61-year-old says in a pre-recorded interview on BBC2's Newsnight.
The interview will be broadcast on Newsnight this Monday at 7.30pm.
