Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Calvin Trillin

Biography & Memoir • 1.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

ABOUT ALICE is Calvin Trillin’s homage to his late wife, Alice. Read by the author with tenderness and affection, the memoir is a celebration of the life the Trillins shared. Thankfully, Trillin reads the book because it would be difficult to conceive of anyone else’s voice containing a more genuine mix of love and longing. Trillin clearly worshiped his wife, and his devotion echoes in every syllable of every word. As a reader and critic of Trillin’s works, Alice offered him affirmation. In ABOUT ALICE, Trillin now seems to want spiritual rather than earthly approval for his work. Although Alice may be gone, Trillin’s short but thoroughly satisfying tribute provides us with a glimpse of this charming and intelligent woman. D.J.S.
