Quite Enough of Calvin Trillin

Quite Enough of Calvin Trillin

Calvin Trillin

Grade: B

"Calvin Trillin is a wonderfully funny storyteller, whether or not his stories are true or fictional. He's a quintessential New Yorker, but his appeal is universal, if more than a little ethnic. I'd read previously many of the essays included in this new compilation, but re-reading them was just as funny the second time around. The essays, some of which are more than thirty years old, remain funny today; many that were written in the Reagan era could have been written last week. The included essays are short enough and filled with enough gems of humor that they simply cry out to be read aloud, and in this instance my husband was the happy recipient."

Read this review in its entirety at Amazon. It is not a Vine review; I received a digital copy from the publisher.
