Christopher Hitchens has been diagnosed with esophageal cancer.

The Vanity Fair and Slate columnist and author of recent memoir
Hitch 22 recently suspended his book tour for what was described as
"personal reasons."

Now, he reveals in a statement:

I have been advised by my physician that I must undergo a course
of chemotherapy on my esophagus. This advice seems persuasive
to me. I regret having had to cancel so many engagements at such
short notice. Hitchens, a well-known smoker, attempted in 2008 to
quit but reportedly still smokes, according to a recent Washington
Post article.
