Above all, I will miss his intellectual honesty - right up to the end. Here is a 18 min interview he gave to A Cooper/CNN recently.

No man was ever as easy to visit in hospital. He didn't want flowers and grapes, he wanted conversation, and presence. All silences were useful.

Does anybody have any idea what deadline he was meeting when he was within the last few days? I imagine that would be quite a read.

"The next morning, at Christopher's request, Alexander and I set up a desk for him under a window. We helped him and his pole with its feed-lines across the room, arranged pillows on his chair, adjusted the height of his laptop. Talking and dozing were all very well, but Christopher had only a few days to produce 3,000 words on Ian Ker's biography of Chesterton. Whenever people talk of Christopher's journalism, I will always think of this moment."

Thanks. Was never a big fan of Chesterton, but I'm sure that would make interesting reading nonetheless.
