Abstract:

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. Becausebeyond anything elsethis is truly a love story, something all too rare today.
