Calvin Trillin is an American journalist, humorist and novelist. Born in Missouri, he joined The New Yorker in 1963. His reporting there has concentrated on America, between the coasts. For fifteen years, he produced an article from somewhere in the country every three weeks, on subjects that ranged from the murder of a farmer's wife in Iowa to the author's effort to write the definitive history of a Louisiana restaurant called Didee's "or to eat an awful lot of baked duck and dirty rice trying."
