"No great deed, private or public, has ever been undertaken in a bliss of certainty."         ~  Leon Wieseltier ~

Leon Wieseltier, the sharp-tongued literary editor of The New Republic, has used his role to deliver brilliant, scathing put-downs of intellectual fads and pretense. He was born in Brooklyn in 1952. He studied Jewish history and philosophy at Columbia, Oxford, and Harvard's Society of Fellows. He won the National Jewish Book Award for the memoir Kaddish, about his year of mourning after his father's death.
