About The Book
This delightful book collects Calvin Trillin’s accounts of his trips to Europe with his wife, Alice, and their two daughters. In Taormina, Sicily, they cheerfully disagree with Mrs. Tweedie’s 1904 assertion that the beautiful town “is being spoilt,” and skip the Grand Tour in favor of swimming holes, table soccer, and taureaux piscine. In Paris, they spend a day on the Champs-Elysées comparing Freetime’s “le Hitburger” to McDonald’s Big Mac. In Spain, Trillin wonders whether he will run out of Spanish “the way someone might run out of flour or eggs.” Filled with Trillin’s characteristic humor, Travels with Alice is the perfect book for summer travelers.
