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.

"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)
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.
Calvin Trillin reads his own prose in inimitable style. Each sentence has triple meaning - the words, the clever inferences, and finally the nuances from his voice. Worth listening to at least three times.
Nothing like an author who can laugh at himself,express such affection for his his wife and kids, and amusement at world at large.
This charming collection will catch you off guard and have you laughing unexpectedly.
