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 audiobook.

A wonderful collection of the wit and wisdom of the perceptive and extraordinarily gifted and legendary writer for The New Yorker. For those who know Angell best for his articles on baseball, you’ll get plenty here to recall and celebrate. But there is so much more in this treasure from the still vibrant mid-90 year old.
