About Alice by Calvin Trillin

Calvin Trillin, author and writer for The New Yorker, often write about his wife, Alice. In About Alice, he looks back at his 26-year marriage to Alice, who died in 2001. Alice Trillin was a beautiful, lively, and intelligent woman, and Calvin loved her dearly, although he felt lucky that a woman this special loved him. Alice was his inspiration, often being the foil or straight man in his writings. This short (78 pages) book has received positive reviews with the Christian Science Monitor saying, "She was bright. She was lovely. She was deeply caring. But most of all, she was Alice. About Alice, Calvin Trillin's moving tribute to his wife of almost 40 years, is a slender volume that packs a hefty punch. Anyone who wants to know what it might be like to love the same person for most of a lifetime has only to pick up this little book to find out."
