Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sherry | 2/3/2011

    " Delightful read. Of course I want to read anything about EB and Katherine White "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel | 1/8/2011

    " He's a star.
    Some of the funnier and more interesting descriptions of what it means to be a New Yorker, and grow up in New England. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kris | 7/24/2010

    " Enjoyed this so much, especially some anecdotes about his mother, Katherine S. White, and his stepfather, E.B. White... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Hapzydeco | 5/11/2010

    " Too introspective. However, an easy read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gina | 11/25/2009

    " Roger Angell's mother and step-father were Katharine and E.B. White. All three worked at The New Yorker. Having said that, Angell is not the writer his step-dad was. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bernice | 11/17/2009

    " This was a book that I enjoyed but would not highly recommend it. There were interesting anecdotes about famous people. I would classify it as a quick summer read, nothing that challenges you. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dave | 11/17/2009

    " Roger Angell is perhaps the finest baseball writer of our time. For those that know him only for his baseball books, I strongly recommend you check this book out. He tells a wonderful story. In my mind, this memoir is up there with Wait 'Till Next Year and 'Tis as my favorites. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joegjoeg | 10/30/2009

    " brilliant memoir by the new yorker writer, editor and lover of baseball Roger Angell. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julia | 7/18/2009

    " This was not only a well written memoir, but I also REALLY enjoyed the history of New York City. Strangely, I have read multiple books this year that discuss various people's relationships with E.B. White and now I'm after a biography of him! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Scott | 4/10/2009

    " Read most of this in the New Yorker and enjoyed it more there in small doses. Angell has a great voice, though, and has led an undeniably interesting life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris | 12/5/2008

    " Thoughtful, nostalgic, graceful and charmingly wise. I loved this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chrissa | 9/12/2008

    " Fantastic collection of personal essays about the author's years at the New Yorker, life with Katharine and E.B. White (his mother and stepfather), and his childhood in the New York City of a bygone era. My only criticism is that it reads too quickly -- I wish it would last longer. "
