This Old Man - Roger Angell

Staff Pick
Roger Angell's New Yorker essays combine acute observations of everyday life with reflections, social and personal, of the past. This Old Man collects a number of these, together with a few other writings, that range from baseball to the craft of writing and beyond, always with a focus on the human being at the center of an event or work.  Angell's style allows him to express a leisurely intelligence that encourages thoughtful reflection. His approach is on full display in the title essay, written when he was 92, for it is simultaneously melancholy and affirming.
