A remarkably moving and memorable tribute to Alice Trillin, who figured prominently and indelibly in Calvin Trillin's books, and in his life. Alice was a beautiful, brilliant, and beloved wife. She died all too soon, coincidentally on 9/11. Since then, Calvin Trillin has been working on a tribute. It was finally published in The New Yorker in March, and immediately became one of the most talked about pieces in recent years. Calvin then expanded the article into this persuasive and poignant portrait, which is not about grief, but rather a celebration of a remarkably rewarding and remunerative life. It has left listeners in tears, unable, for a while, to shake the experience from the mind. Because - beyond anything else - this is truly a love story, something all too rare today.… (més)

Loving little memoir that, in less than 150 pages, brings Alice vibrantly to life. ( )

A beautiful tribute by her husband, author Calvin Trillin, after Alice Trillin’s death in 2001. Alice contracted lung cancer in 1976 never having been a smoker and lived another 25 years before hearth disease brought on by radiation treatment for her cancer led to her death. This book is fewer than 100 pages, and if you’re listening to it as I did, is about an hour long. The writing is what you expect from Calvin Trillin—eloquent and witty at the same time. His love for Alice permeates every word of the story. Although I’m sure Alice Trillin knew how much her husband loved her, it’s too bad she wasn’t around to read his adoring tribute to her. If you need a benchmark on which to judge your own marriage, this is it. ( )

To be loved as Calvin loved Alice ... ( )

This is apparently a slightly longer version of the aritcle that ran in the New Yorker in 2006. For such a slim edition, it's a remarkably generous book. Trillin lets the reader see--or makes them feel they see--into his love for his wife. I felt like I knew him and Alice all along throughout their life together. Yet the writing is not at all voyeuristic. I wonder at how he could write such a perfect piece. In 78 pages--short ones at that--, Trillin writes in his perfect way: elegant and succinct writing that is never too writerly or self-conscious and humor ever present. A perfect read. ( )
