Intimate, funny, and moving ...
Intimate, funny, and moving portraits form the book’s centerpiece as Angell remembers his surprising relatives, his early attraction to baseball in the time of Ruth and Gehrig and DiMaggio, and his vivid colleagues during a long career as a New Yorker writer and editor. Infused with pleasure and sadness, Angell’s disarming memoir also evokes an attachment to life’s better moments.
"One of the most entertaining and gracious prose styles of his gracious generation."—TIME
"A lovely book and an honest one . . . it contains truths: about loyalty and love, about work and play, about getting on with the cards that life deals you. It’s also a genuinely grown-up book, a rare gem indeed in our pubescent age."—THE WASHINGTON POST BOOK WORLD
