Description

Calvin Trillin has been a staff writer for The New Yorker since 1963. His rich and varied ensemble of works include Tepper Isn’t Going Out, which he claims is the first parking novel, two books of verse on the Bush Administration, a collection of reportage on murders, and three books on eating that were republished as “The Tummy Trilogy.” His most recent book is About Alice, a memoir.

What other American writer might be praised for work that is “horrifyingly mouth-watering” or lauded because “he can make a silk purse out of such routine merchandise as zipping and unzipping a snowsuit”? About Obviously On: the Bush Administration in Rhyme, Trillin himself said, “We weren’t going to know whether you could bring down a presidency with iambic pentameter until somebody tried it.”
