The only writer with membership in both the Baseball Hall of Fame and the American Academy of Arts and Letters, Roger Angell (son of acclaimed New Yorker editor Katharine Angell White and stepson of E. B. White) is a unique American treasure. His elegant writing style, affable humor, and keen powers of observation are on full display in this delightful collection of short works: essays, personal letters, childhood memories, haikus, book reviews, Talk of the Town stories, tributes to literary luminaries (and loved ones) who've passed on, baseball musings, and more. The poignant title piece - an ultimately uplifting essay about the physical challenges, powerful heartaches, and extraordinary joys of being ninety-three is worth the price of admission. This Old Man is rich with wisdom and joy. (CH)
