Author Larry L. King has some scathing remarks about former Harper's editor Lewis Lapham in King's new book, In Search of Willie Morris, pages 143-149.
It's a story about how young Lapham betrayed his colleagues at the magazine on his way to becoming editor.
Larry L. King says:
"A rich boy-- his father held a seat on the New York Stock Exchange-- Lapham was hard up neither for money nor for a job . . . 'They will never say of you as they said of FDR, that you are a traitor to your class,' I hissed to Lapham. 'You saw the opportunity to cozy up to power and another rich man's spoiled son and zoomed in like a goddamned honing pigeon.'"
