Calvin Trillin, Piece by Piece (2 Cassettes)

Overview


Calvin Trillin, who has something witty and insightful to say about any topic, has distinguished himself in fields of writing that are remarkably diverse. For thirty years, he has reported on the American scene for The New Yorker. His memoir of the fifties, Remembering Denny, was a New York Times bestseller. But he is perhaps best known for his humor—in his syndicated newspaper column, in the "Shouts and Murmurs" section of The New Yorker, in his antic adventures as a "happy cater," in the weekly appearances ...

Overview


Calvin Trillin, who has something witty and insightful to say about any topic, has distinguished himself in fields of writing that are remarkably diverse. For thirty years, he has reported on the American scene for The New Yorker. His memoir of the fifties, Remembering Denny, was a New York Times bestseller. But he is perhaps best known for his humor—in his syndicated newspaper column, in the "Shouts and Murmurs" section of The New Yorker, in his antic adventures as a "happy cater," in the weekly appearances with Johnny Carson and David Letterman.

This original recording—his first—features Trillin at his most uproarious, reading from his own articles and books. Wonderfully funny and full of surprises, this is a thoroughly satisfying, eminently entertaining, and beautifully crafted collection.

Trillan's first original recording, this work features Trillin at his most uproarious, reading from his own articles and books. Wonderfully funny and full of surprises, this is a thoroughly satisying, eminently entertaining, and beautifully crafted collection. 2 cassettes.

Editorial Reviews

Audio Publishers Assn.
Winner of the Audie Award for Best Humor of 1997.
Audiofile
New Yorker columnist Calvin Trillin, a Kansas City native, now lives in Greenwich Village ("where people from the suburbs come on Saturday night to test their car alarms"). In this, his first effort at recording his own pieces, his droll reading makes his sharp wit even more hilarious. These short pieces cover a wide range of topics, American first names to Kansas City landmarks, food fads and even the proper attire for a guru. The author reads his own essays and after this sampling you'll find yourself wishing there were more "pieces" in the package [brought to you by HighBridge Audio]. -- ( Sept. 1996 )
