Book Overview

A New York Times Notable Book
Roger Angell's explorations of the summer game are built on acute observation and joyful participation, conveyed in a prose style as admired as Ted Williams's swing. Angell on Fenway Park in another wild September, on Bob Gibson brooding in retirement, on Tom Seaver in mid-windup, on the abysmal early and recent Mets, on a scout at work in back-country Kentucky, on Pete Rose and Willie Mays and Pedro Martinez, on the astounding Barry Bonds at Pac Bell Park, and more, carry us through the arc of the seasons with refreshed understanding and pleasure. This new selection represents Angell's prime writings, short and long, from spring training in 1962 to the explosive World Series of 2002.
Angell is the best baseball essayist around. His relaxed prose glides across the page with a confident grace that most writers-let alone baseball writers-would kill for.-Chicago Tribune
Roger Angell is a writer and fiction editor with the New Yorker. His baseball books include The Summer Game, Five Seasons, Late Innings, Season Ticket, Once More Around the Park, and A Pitcher's Story: Innings with David Cone. He lives in New York.
