Publisher's Summary

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 30 years, he has reported on the American scene for The New Yorker. His memoir of the 1950s, Remembering Denny, was a New York Times best seller. 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", and in his frequent 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.

What the Critics Say

  • Audie Award, Best Humor, 1997

"His droll reading makes his sharp wit even more hilarious....The author reads his own essays and after this sampling you'll find yourself wishing there were more 'pieces' in the package." (AudioFile)

    "Funny and well written"

    I was happy to find this as I've already listened to many other greats like David Sedaris, and am always looking for more humor. This didn't disapoint.
