Christopher Ligota

Having just written an obituary for the Guardian’s Other Lives, I’m pleased to read another – of Christopher Ligota, who to me was one of the more characteristic and intellectually austere of the Warburg librarians, so it’s fascinating to learn more of his life. I remember someone very improbable – I think it was Jack Baer – saying that Ligota was a friend of his, suggesting that he had a different life away from the book stacks.
