Obituary Note: Stanley Kauffmann

Shelf Awareness

Stanley Kauffmann, "whose literate, tightly constructed movie reviews appeared in The New Republic for more than half a century and set a standard for critical ease and erudition," died Wednesday, the New York Times reported. He was 97. His film criticism was collected in several books and he also wrote novels, many of them "while he was an editor at Bantam Books, where he discovered the Walker Percy novel The Moviegoer, and at Ballantine Books."
