Why has it taken so long for literature to produce a great novel about parking in New York City? You can't talk five minutes to a New Yorker without the subject of parking coming up. Of the approximately six gazillion published fictions set in New York, wouldn't you figure there'd have been at least one canonical work before now? "There may be a long tradition in Serbo-Croatia where every young writer takes his crack at a parking novel," Calvin Trillin acknowledges, "but I don't think so. In English, at least, we think it's the first."

Newly released: OBLIVIOUSLY ON HE SAILS: THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION IN RHYME. Calvin Trillin is the ideal speaker. Full of fresh, wry observations delivered in his ironic hilarious style (which we can frequently enjoy with his guest appearances on "The Tonight Show" and "Late Night with David Letterman"), he makes us see our culture in whole new ways. Trillin knows where all the old chicken a la king has gone: stored in silos in Kansas right next to the ones filled with old Nehru jackets. He personally has revised the mottoes that appear on state automobile license plates: Nebraska, for example is "a long way across," and Arkansas on his first try was a little verbose: "Not As Bad As You Might Imagine." And his zest for food, especially Chinese food, is legendary. He has been hailed as a "classic American humorist." In whatever sort of writing and speaking he does, he has an unadorned point of view that is deeply rooted in a Midwestern upbringing. He was born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri, and he has never stopped writing about his hometown. His father, who ran a well known restaurant there, was the subject of Trillin's wonderful family memoir: MESSAGES FROM MY FATHER (1996). His latest book is FAMILY MAN (1998), full of stories and "advise" in that Trillin way. "Getting advice on the best way to bring up children is like getting advice on the best way to breathe; sooner or later, you're probably going to forget it and go back to your regular old in-and-out."

Thursday June 1st, 2006 Somehow, despite everything Calvin Trillin wrote about the Bush Administration in Obliviously On He Sails , his 2004 bestseller in verse, George W. Bush is still in the White House. Taking a philosophical view, Trillin has said, "We weren't going to know whether you could bring down a presidency with iambic pentameter until somebody tried it."
Now Trillin is trying again, back at his pithy and hilarious best to comment on the President's decision to go to war in Iraq. Trillin deals with the people around Bush, such as Nanny Dick Cheney and Mushroom Cloud Rice and Orange John Ashcroft and Orange John's successor, Alberto Gonzales. He tries to predict the behavior of the famously intemperate John Bolton as ambassador to the United Nations in poems with titles like "Bolton Chases French Ambassador Up Tree" and "White House Says Bolton Can Do Job Even While in Straitjacket." Finally, in dealing with whether the entire Bush Administration, like the unfortunate Brownie, has done a heckuva job, he composes a small-government sea chantey for the Republicans: 'Cause government's the problem, lads, Americans would all do well to shunit. Yes, government's the problem, lads. At least it is when we're the ones who run it.'

    An interview with the author, at the website.
    C A L V I N T R I L L I N
    if weekly columnists are inevitably forced to cannibalize their personal lives, Calvin Trillin put off the inevitable for quite a while. After a disgruntled stint writing for Time magazine where he vainly attempted to get out of religion stories by inserting the word "alleged" before such miraculous events as the crucifixion and the parting of the Red Sea the young journalist landed a staff writer job at The New Yorker. For 15 years he traveled the country, ferreting out odd stories in out-of-the-way places and developing his palate for such delicacies as chicken-fried steak and barbequed backribs, along with a reputation as one of the first champions of American regional cuisine. His column in The Nation (for which he was famously underpaid "in the high two figures" by the publisher, a man he calls Victor "Sticky Fingers" Navasky) became syndicated in 1986, and he has since returned in triumph (and perhaps gloating) as a columnist for Time. The Nation continues to publish his satirical poetry, which analyzes the week's news in rhymed couplets which can only be described as doggerel an acquired taste. But despite publishing 16 books (including two novels and a volume of short stories), Trillin didn't debut on the bestseller list until 1993, with "Remembering Denny." He is still surprised by the success of this "sad" book, a memoir about a college friend who appeared to be the most golden and promising of their Yale class and who wound up committing suicide in the early '90s. While puzzling out the reasons for Denny's lack of faith in himself, Trillin kept returning, by comparison, to his own childhood and how his parents conveyed to him their subtle, but rock-solid, conviction that he was "a special case." These ruminations inspired a memoir about his father, published as an essay in The New Yorker and now appearing in expanded form as his new book, "Messages From My Father."
