Reviews

PRAISE FOR GAME TIME
"Roger Angell has an undiminished sense of wonder about a game in
which nothing is predictable except the certainty of surprise.The next
best thing to being in the bleachers, in fact, is savoring accounts of the
sport by this cheerful, consistently quotable scorekeeper."
--THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW
"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

"The next best thing to being in the bleachers."
--The New York Times Book Review (05/25/2003)
"They have a certain aged, triple-distilled quality: each one has the internal complexity of a novel."
