Calvin Trillin’s birthday’s coming up in a couple of weeks. Recently, he was interviewed by Sophie Röell of The Browser on the subject of memoirs. You could find worse ways to spend a few minutes of reading time.

One of these days I’m going to find the tape I made of my own interview with Trillin for the unpublished final issue of my book review and get a chance to verify that I sounded like a doofus in my singular chance to talk to him one-on-one.
