This book is a collection of 16 essays by Calvin Trillin on the joys and travails of life with children He has two daughters Abigail and Sarah and raised them with his wife Alice in Manhattan Although raising a family in Manhattan might make it seem like Mr Trillin is from a rarefied world inaccessible to most of us I found his writing to be down to earth relatable and his observations about parenting to be fairly universal Mr Trillin is a gifted writer and I enjoyed reading his thoughts on family life immensely He has an obvious love for his family a great eye for detail and a wonderful sense of humorThis was my first time reading a book by Calvin Trillin I d heard of him and seen uotes by him and realized he was perhaps an important contemporary writer but I d never taken the time to read one of his books I can uneuivocally tell you that I will be reading by Mr Trillin as I think he might be the kind of writer who could write about virtually anything and I would enjoy reading itThis isn t a book that begs for an in depth review It is an easy humorous enjoyable read that documents the author s life with his two daughters and his thoughts on parenting More than anything this book made me wish I could live in the Trillin family Mr Trillin seems like a wonderful father with an amusing and fun personality I was particularly drawn to his love of Halloween his obvious affection for his wife and the family s dedication to making elaborate home movies I wanted to grow up in the Trillin householdWhile I was reading I kept marking sections of the book to showcase passages that I think illustrate what a reader can expect in this book I ended up having so many that I m just going to go through and pick three or four that will give you the best feel for this book When our older daughter Abigail was four years old she attended a progressive nursery school in lower Manhattan that was sweet and nurturing and if I may say so a little bit earnest It was the sort of place where teachers would say to a kid who had just attacked another kid Use words not hands dear At one point we all began to wonder exactly what the words for sneaking up behind another kid and pulling her hair might be All I could think of was something like I m a nasty little beast who deserves a good hiding I tried to fulfill the mandate every American has to convince his children that they have a cushy deal compared with the deprivations and tribulations he had to face as a child At one point of course I had to uit telling them that when I was a little boy in Kansas City my sister Sukey and I walked ten miles barefoot through the snow just to get to school every morning They got old enough to check it out This is always an awkward transition for a parent the onset of what I think of as the age of independent confirmation of data It seems to come rather suddenly One moment your daughters are accepting everything you say without reservationthe next moment you ve got a couple of private eyes in the house But we all felt that keeping a dog in the city would be too difficult That left cats When the girls were asked why we didn t have one they always said Daddy hates cats to which I always replied No girls hating cats would be prejudice and Mommy and I have tried to bring you up to oppose prejudice whenever you encounter it What might be fair to say is that I have never met a cat I likedAt the very least parents wonder whether they should worry I always found it comforting when I d come across something I could decide not to worry about Then I could cross it off the list When Sarah was little she had an imaginary friend named Craig Binnger Imaginary friends are supposed to have names like Jack or Popo or Tillie bear I said to Alice How come her friend sounds like a life insurance salesman Should we worry about that NoAbout the AuthorCalvin Trillin is the author 19 previous books including American Fried Travels with Alice Remembering Denny and Messages from My Father A long time staff writer for The New Yorker he also wrote a column for Time and a weekly poem for The Nation He was raised in Kansas City Missouri and lives in New York CityFinal ThoughtsA fun smart delightful collection of essays on family life by a gifted writer I ll definitely be reading books by Mr Trillin Any recommendations for the next one to seek out
