    With a brilliant and entertaining series of anecdotes from his life as one of the foremost book reviews and editors in the U.S. in the past 50 years, Christopher Lehmann-Haupt—descended from a family of German/Austrian Jews who made a significant impact at the University of Innsbruck before National Socialism put an end to that--kept an audience of some 40 rapt listeners entertained and informed over the course of nearly two hours.
