No Place I Would Rather Be
Roger Angell and A Life in Baseball WritingBook - 2019
Legendary New Yorker writer and editor Roger Angell is considered to be among the greatest baseball writers. He brings a fan's love, a fiction writer's eye, and an essayist's sensibility to the game. No other baseball writer has a through line quite like Angell's: born in 1920, he was an avid fan of the game by the Depression era, when he watched Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig hit home runs at Yankee Stadium. He began writing about baseball in 1962 and continued through the decades, lately blogging about baseball's postseasons.
