Editor Emeritus of Harper's, Editor of Lapham's Quarterly
Lewis Lapham has been compared to Mark Twain (by Vanity Fair), H.L. Mencken (by The New York Times), and Montaigne (by Tom Wolfe). But as the voice of conviction in an age of conformity, this author, editor, thinker, speaker, and champion of democracy truly needs no comparison. In his 30 years as editor at Harper's Magazine, Lapham continuously revitalized and modernized a century-and-a-half old magazine, publishing only the best contemporary American novelists and journalists. Many of the pieces he commissioned would become bestselling books in their own right.
