Even though we knew that he had been seriously ill for some time, all of us here at Nation Books are still extraordinarily sad to hear of the death of Christopher Hitchens, who was our author and friend. We take great pleasure in the books that we collaborated on with him: Blood, Class and Empire; Love, Poverty and War; and Left Hooks, Rights Crosses, an anthology of best political writing from the 1990s, which he co-edited with Christopher Caldwell. Christopher was a great mentor to all of us here, showed extreme kindness and worked very hard for us.
Our sincere condolences go out to his wife Carol and his children Alexander, Antonia and Sophia. We plan to publish a more personal appreciation in the future.
