If today is your birthday, you share it with one of my favorite authors – Calvin Trillin.
Known for his humorous views published in The New Yorker essays, Trillin has also written books with that same flavor…the one I most like is
Tepper Isn’t Going Out – read my review – here
I would often read one of Trillin’s essay, and then follow up with the topic expanded in one of his books. Trillin wrote about his wife in “Alice, Off the Page,” in the March 27, 2006 issue of The New Yorker; in his short book, About Alice, a tribute to his wife after her death, he retains his familiar wry take on life.
