NEW YORKER columnist Calvin Trillin, a Kansas City native, now lives in Greenwich Village ("where people from the suburbs come on Saturday nights to test their car alarms"). In this, his first effort at recording his own pieces, his droll reading makes his sharp wit even more hilarious. These short pieces cover a wide range of topics--American first names to Kansas City landmarks, food fads and even the proper attire for a guru. The author reads his own short essays and after this sampling you'll find yourself wishing there were more "pieces" in the package. S.I.R. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPT 96]
