About Alice
by Calvin Trillin
Random House
ISBN 1-4000-6615-8
Published December 2006 - Hardcover - 83 pages - $14.95

I think secretly many women wish to be the sole object of their husband's affections.  To be utterly loved and doted on.  Smitten.  This charming little book is a case in point of a man's utter devotion to his beloved and beautiful wife.  The New Yorker writer Calvin Trillin's bestselling book is about his wife and family life.  It's about his wife's outlook on life, about their children, and with his wife dying from cancer, he reflects just how much notice this husband took of his wife.  It's about her gifts and glory, and although not soppy, it's a joy to read.  You'll get through it in no time and feel better for having read it.
Conclusion - A gem of a little book.
