About this title


Essays discuss journalism, the publishing industry, the arts, fame, violence, politics, the Reagan administration, and Oliver North

From Library Journal:

Here is a book that a reader may dip into without having to take a plunge. It consists of 70 essays that Lapham, author of Money and Class in America ( LJ 1/88), editor of Harper's Magazine, and host of the TV series Bookmark , wrote between 1980 and 1989. Most of the selections appeared in Harper's and the remainder in such newspapers as The Washington Post and The Baltimore Sun . It is a ships-and-shoes-and-sealing wax affair in which the editor-philosopher displays an agile, wide-ranging mind and an easy, free-flowing style. He writes about everything--arts and letters, politics and economics, states and government. A great deal of the talk is witty and lighthearted, several of the anecdotes are delightful, and there is much satire, both kindly and biting. But there is also an element of intellectual idealism that gives depth of a kind to the general riot. A solid purchase. For more on Lapham, see "Contributing Factors," p. 93.
