Distinguished poet and novelist Jay Parini presents some of his best essays -- both classic and unpublished works -- on topics ranging from baseball to Frost and Emerson to the culture of creative writing. For aspiring writers, "Some Necessary Angels" is an illuminating glimpse into the workshop of a distinguished novelist and critic. For readers who share Parini's love of language, it is an invigorating expression of faith.

Industry Reviews

Parini's prose, like his poetry, is fluid and generous. As a working poet, he is able to distill to its essences his subjects'work. These essays are imminently approachable. American Book Review Eloquent, clear and learned, without being pedantic, these essays provide a voyage into delight. Publishers Weekly Parini's book is a find; it is large enough to speak authoritatively on poetry and poetics, but intimate enough to linger on the language. Virginia Quarterly Review
