The year of living dyingly

”The phrase “the year of living dyingly” occurs only once in Christopher Hitchens’s new memoir, Mortality, but it is strong enough to stay with the reader long after the book has concluded. If I’ve learned one thing from this slim tome, it’s that death is easy; it’s dying that takes away our dignity, and with it, our humanity. Mortality is an honest stare-down, sometimes brutally so, in the face of death. ”
