Calvin Trillin

Calvin Trillin

Calvin Trillin has been called "perhaps the finest reporter in America." His wry commentaries on the American scene and books chronicling his adventures as a "happy eater" have earned him renown as "a classic American humorist."

Trillin has written more than two dozen books, including About Alice, a New York Times bestseller in 2007. He has also written two other best-selling memoirs, Remembering Denny and Messages from My Father.

Joan Cartan-Hansen talks with Trillin about his work, including his most recent book, Quite Enough of Calvin Trillin: Forty Years of Funny Stuff. Trillin came to Idaho to speak to the Idaho Humanities Council.
