Powell's City of Books

Calvin Trillin is the kind of man who can cover a murder in long-form reportage and also describe bland potato knishes as resembling "vinyl coin purses." You don't frequently find that sort of range. Although he deserves fame for coining the term La Maison de la Casa House to refer to restaurants that serve indistinct, interchangeable "continental cuisines," he is better known for his sense of humor and 47 years with the New Yorker. He gathered his best comic columns in his new book, Quite Enough of Calvin Trillin. AARON GILBREATH Read our interview with Trillin here.
