Trillin is my favorite author - Alice is my favorite subject...

In this book, his quirkyness really comes to the fore. I cannot get enough of him!

Calvin Trillin's "Alice, Let's Eat"

This is another wonderful book from the witty and perceptive Mr. Trillin. I heartily recommend it.

eat, drink and love Alice

Calvin Trillin is my favorite food writer because he is so darned funny. He wrote this book in 1976. At the time, his beloved wife Alice had just been operated on for lung cancer. There is no trace of grim sorrow in this wonderful book, just zest for good food and love for Alice. This book was just re-issued in conjunction with Trillin's remembrance of Alice called "About Alice." She died in 2001. Read "Alice, Let's Eat" first. Get to know her. Then read "About Alice." Trillin is a great writer. The first book will make you laugh. "About Alice" will bring you a sad smile. What a remarkable woman. Such a loss. Yet, a life well lived. My favorite line in "Alice, Let's Eat" is when Trillin is in Owensboro, Kentucky looking for the best barbecued mutton. The waitress tells him that "we have people in here from all over...we had a Puerto Rican in here once." Read both books. You'll be glad that you did.
