Gathers essays, letters, light verse, book reviews, Talk of the Town stories, farewells, haikus, Profiles, Christmas greetings, late thoughts on the costs of war and more by the longtime contributor to and a senior fiction editor of the New Yorker magazine. Angell's fluid prose and native curiosity make him an amiable and compelling companion on the page. Whether the subject is coping with the loss of his wife, Carol, editing John Updike, the seventh game of the 2014 World Series, his appreciation of fox terriers, or the Fourth of July ceremonies in his summer home in rural Maine, what links the pieces is the deep sense of gratitude that suffuses them.

Baseball has a Hall of Fame; only Thomas Paine is a member of the Hall of Paine.
