Calvin Marshall Trillin is an American journalist, humorist, food writer, poet, memoirist and novelist.

In this book, About Alice, Trillin offers a loving portrait of his wife, Alice – an educator who was equally at home teaching at a university or a drug treatment center, a gifted writer, a stunningly beautiful and thoroughly engaged woman who, in the words of a friend, “managed to navigate the tricky waters between living a life you could be proud of and still delighting in the many things there are to take pleasure in.”

Though it deals with devastating loss, About Alice is also a love story, chronicling a romance that lasted decades. This book is a gift of love to the wife he adored, and to his readers.
