Calvin Trillin

Calvin Trillin is a living legend.  He has written for Time, The New Yorker and The Nation, among other publications.  His subjects include food, travel and politics.  He is also a novelist and short-story writer.  In recent years, he has bravely picked up the mantle of Ogden Nash as doggerelist-in-chief.

Dogfight, his latest, is mostly tortured verse and a few short-short stories, all with the Trillin wry humor, about our recent election.
