In the CJR, Meghan O'Rourke offers a worshipful -- and very interesting -- profile of critic John Leonard: "[He] is...with the exception of Susan Sontag, the best American literary critic to come of age in the 1960s, when the destabilizing forces of rock ’n’ roll and popular culture ransacked Axel’s Castle, that modernist symbol of aesthetic detachment, and began throwing parties in the inner keep. "
