Life Sketches

John Hersey, Author Vintage Books USA $10.95 (377p) ISBN 978-0-679-73196-2
Profiled here are notables, including Sinclair Lewis, JFK and Alfred Knopf, and such unknowns as a brave widow who survived a flood and an illiterate man who learned to read and write. Although some essays disappoint, PW found that ``Hersey always writes clearly and unpretentiously, and the best of these pieces are very superior journalism indeed.'' Photos. (Feb.)
