About Alice by Calvin Trillin

April 12, 2007

Funny, heartbreaking, inspirational....In honor of his wife of over 30 years, Trillin's book is also a tribute to a marriage and a family that most people only dream about.

From their first meeting at a Greenwich Village party to, through the birth of their daughters and Alice's battle against cancer and recovery, to her death in 2001 of heart failure, the reader is allowed into a relationship that was not only deep and meaningful but also funny and affirming.

Trillin, a Kansas City native, attributes all of his success in life to his bright and funny wife. This book is well worth the two hours it takes to read.

This book and many others are available in both Spanish and English as well as book and audio form at the De Soto branch of the Johnson County Library. The book is also available on audio tape.
