Splash du Jour: Wednesday

Ian McEwan, speaking of the loss of his friend, Christopher Hitchens:
 "It's very… desolate. It really does feel empty. He was the one of us who seemed to embrace all of literature; as time goes by, I don't think people will associate him with his taking an unusual line on Iraq. They will connect him with his brilliant essays on writers: Chesterton, Kipling, Wodehouse. The appetite. The conversations. I really do miss them. Martin [Amis] and I regularly check in with each other in the post-Hitch desert."


Have a great Wednesday!
