You'll like Calvin Trillin. He is one of our great humorists, whether he is writing about food, politics, or characters in his New York neighborhood. He also has tremendous talent as a serious writer. Pick up a copy of "Killings" or "Remembering Denny" for that aspect of his work. "American Fried", Alice Let's Eat", and "Third Helpings" (also known as his "Food Trilogy") for his more humorous and food related musings.
