The sights and sounds of Lewis Lapham

Here's Lewis Lapham, legendary editor of Harper's and current editor of Lapham's Quarterly, in conversation with Harry Kreisler, talking about what he does, and what he talks about is always interesting.

Lewis is the rarest of birds, a celebrity editor--not quite Bennett Cerf on What's My Line celebritydom, but well-known enough to use his name to do dream projects. (Someday I'll post something about Lapham's Quarterly and the art of compiling, where Lapham has directly influenced me.)
