The Best-Dressed List Burns My Britches

Christopher Hitchens, Critic Of Religion, Dies At 62

12/16/2011

Christopher Hitchens, the atheist and iconoclast who discovered in adulthood that he was of Jewish descent, has died.

Vanity Fair, where much of Hitchens' work appeared, announced his passing late Thursday night on Twitter. He was 62 and suffering from esophageal cancer.

Hitchens, born in Britain but more recently naturalized as an American citizen, emerged from the British left in the 1970s, joining the New Statesman as a journalist.
