  • I've listened to a few of Trillin's books and he is very funny. I love his dry, understated humor.Can't keep the books separatewas this the one with the short story titled "Geography". The story about how he and his sister would fight over territory in the back seat of the car. His mother's admonition "we don't hit girls", so his sister was Russia bristling with arms and he was Switzerland. A bad day is a "multi-motor dayI thought I just replaced the motor in the dishwasher". He couldn't convinc [...]


  • We live in a world that no longer deserves Calvin Trillin. His humorous pieces, as in this audiobook, are whimsical and self-deprecating. In the Trumpiverse, these are characteristics that are in short supply. His serious pieces are full of facts and ideas, also in short supply. Listen to this if you want to be taken back to a better time, at least in the media.


  • Trillin gets quite a few funny one-liners mentioned in a range of subjects, so I thought I'd give the book a go. It had some laughs, but not much of anything deeper or more profound. No great truths lurking behind the laughter, as I really hope from humor (and I get, for example, from Terry Pratchett). Just him ridiculing/teasing his dentist.


  • Very funny, insightful humor. Worth the read just for the Chinatown chicken story. I listened to the book, read by Trillin, a good way to enjoy it.


  • An audiobook perfect for some light summer humor. I think I've read the print version before, but I do enjoy Calvin Trillin reading his own work.
