A contributor to the New Yorker for fifty years, he is particularly admired for his writing about food and crime, a combination we leave to more subtle minds to untangle. He is the winner of the Thurber Prize for American Humor for his collection, Quite Enough of Calvin Trillin: Forty Years of Funny Stuff. On this episode, recorded in front of a live audience at 92YTribeca, he is buoyed by the Celtic fiddler Cleek Shrey. That’s entertainment.


  • PERSON: Emanuel “Wally” Popolizio, head of the New York City Housing Authority from 1986-1990

  • PLACE: Bull on top of American Hereford Association, Kansas City

  • THING: His barn in Nova Scotia (not actually Trillin’s barn)
