Description
Roger Angell, the acclaimed New Yorker writer and editor, returns with a selection of writings that celebrate a view from the tenth decade of an engaged, vibrant life. Long known for his range and supple prose (he is the only writer elected to membership in both the Baseball Hall of Fame and the American Academy of Arts and Letters), Angell won the 2015 American Society of Magazine Editors' Best Essay award for "This Old Man," which forms a centerpiece for this book. This deeply personal account is a survey of the limitations and discoveries of great age, with abundant life, poignant loss, jokes, retrieved moments, and fresh love, set down in an informal and moving fashion. A flood of readers from different generations have discovered and shared this classic piece. Angell's fluid prose and native curiosity make him an amiable and compelling companion on the page. The book gathers essays, letters, light verse, book reviews, Talk of the Town stories, farewells, haikus, Profiles, Christmas greetings, late thoughts on the costs of war. Whether it's a Fourth of July in rural Maine, a beloved British author at work, Derek Jeter's departure, the final game of the 2014 World Series, an all-dog opera, editorial exchanges with John Updike, or a letter to a son, what links the pieces is the author's perceptions and humor, his utter absence of self-pity, and his appreciation of friends and colleagues--writers, ballplayers, editors, artists--encountered over the course of a full and generous life.

Notes

Description
"From the acclaimed New Yorker writer and editor, a compendium of writings that celebrate the view from the tenth decade of his richly lived life In February 2014, The New Yorker published an essay by Roger Angell called "This Old Man," a meditation on life at age ninety-three. With great humor and not an ounce of self-pity or sentimentality, Angell wrote about health, mind, and memory; reckoning with the past and a long list of friends and family who have died; daily joys and struggles; and, above all, love. Cheerful and beautiful and moving, the piece became an instant classic, won a National Magazine Award, and has been shared and discussed by legions of readers young and old. "This Old Man" is the centerpiece of Angell's new book, which gathers essays, letters, photos, comic verse, and drawings that in aggregate present a kaleidoscopic portrayal of a deeply engaged and vibrant life --,Provided by publisher.
