The only writer elected to membership in both the Baseball Hall of Fame and the American Academy of Arts and Letters, New Yorker writer and editor Roger Angell won the 2015 American Society of Magazine Editors' Ellie Award in Essay and Criticism for "This Old Man," a deeply personal perspective on life from the middle of his tenth decade. It is joined here by dozens of essays, letters, light verse, book reviews, "Talk of the Town" stories, farewells, haikus, profiles, and Christmas greetings, all of which share Angell's sharp-eyed observations, his effortlessly fluid thought, and his genuine appreciation of the friends and colleagues he has encountered in his uncommonly full life.
