Bloomberg.com has just posted a podcast of the interview I did with Lewis Lapham about American Emperor. Mr. Lapham (it wasn’t long enough to get on a first-name basis) no longer edits Harper’s, which he did for many years, but does put out Lapham’s Quarterly, in addition to doing this series of podcast interviews for Bloomberg. com. He was a gracious interviewer and evidently enjoyed the book. Or so he said.
