In his memoirs, ''Hitch-22'', he wrote of a sexual encounter with two (unnamed) male members of {{w|Margaret Thatcher|Margaret Thatcher's}} cabinet. Hitchens was well-known for his drinking and smoking habits, consuming 50,000 cigarettes a year according to one report, and drinking enough every day "to stun the average mule" (according to Hitchens himself). The discovery of cancer last year was, according to Hitchens, "something so predictable and banal that it bores even me".
 
{{w|Salman Rushdie}}, whom Hitchens had supported against Ayatollah Khomeini's fatwa, wrote on Twitter following Hitchens' death: "Goodbye, my beloved friend. A great voice falls silent. A great heart stops". The scientist and atheist author {{w|Richard Dawkins}} also paid tribute to Hitchens: "I shall miss him terribly and so will everybody who values the life of the intellect, of rationality of reason".
 
Hitchens was not close to his brother {{w|Peter Hitchens}}, a conservative columnist. He is survived by wife Carol Blue, daughter Antonia, and two children Alexander and Sophia from an earlier marriage.
