About Alice

Calvin Trillin has written for the New Yorker for 30 years, which should give you an idea of his facility with words. This spare volume, which can be read in an hour but deserves more, is indeed about Alice, his wife, who died a few years ago. This tribute, tender without being maudlin, is clear-eyed look at their love and marriage. I can highly recommend it, and will soon be looking for Mr. Trillin's back titles.
