One of the most celebrated baseball writers of our time has selected his favorite pieces from the last 40 years to create this definitive volume of his most memorable work. Angell includes writing never previously collected as well as selections from "The Summer Game, Five Seasons, Late Innings" and "Season Tickets".
From the Publisher:
One of the most celebrated baseball writers of all time looks back on forty years of writing about the game to select his best work. Original.
Annotation:
A collection of Roger Angell's essays on baseball. He writes on the game itself and his love for it, and he examines the special qualities needed in pitchers and catchers. His profiles of players such as Bob Gibson, and his essay on two fans who are man and wife are examples of his best "New Yorker" writing.
Author Bio
Roger Angell
A 1942 graduate of Harvard, Angell worked for several magazines in the '40s and '50s before becoming a contributor to "The New Yorker", where he has had a long career, eventually becoming a fiction editor. His lyrical, clear-eyed essays on baseball have won him many devotees and a reputation as one of the country's most gifted sportswriters. His year-end holiday poem, in which he rhymes an incredible assortment of notables from the year just past, has become something of a tradition at "The New Yorker".
