In Which Lewis Lapham Finds His Ideal Format

I’ve long been a fan of Lewis Lapham; he put out a great Harpers magazine for many years, and I’m intrigued by the new Lapham’s Quarterly (though I was a little distressed when, in 2004, Lapham published an essay in Harpers in which he talked about his bad experiences sitting in the crowd at the GOP convention in NYC–a week before the convention actually, um, happened). Still, Lewis is on the history tip now, which is probably safer ground, and has started a new blog; you can check out the first entry, here.
