Some of Trillin's targets (from the late 1980's) have lost their topicality, but there is still enough humor--and outrage--to keep readers reading. Of course, in any collection of short pieces like this, it's wise to take only a few at a time. But this is an assortment of quality cookies, not just a jumble of miscellaneous crumbs (with a bow to Trillin's food writing).

I do love Calvin Trillin, don't get me wrong, and he's just as funny in this book as he is in his others. I think. Too many of the essays reference political figures and going ons of the late eighties. And I'm sure his commentary on the subjects is both hilarious and cutting, and was likely very timely, but I have no idea who most of them are, as I was a toddler at the time.
