love letter for alice

For the requisite Valentine's Day post, I have to recommend that you read About Alice; it's the most beautifully written love story that I've ever read. Last week, the book jacket alone made me cry at work, and reading the book at home had me sobbing. I've been a huge Calvin Trillin fan for years (I think he's responsible for my near-obsession with barbeque). Bud really, really loved his Alice, and he's one of the lucky few who can communicate that love through words.

Hubby's socks will be finished today, too.

If you liked "About Alice" then you'd like the interview with Trillin about the book on NPR. I haven't been a big Trillin fan, mainly due to lack of exposure but the interview was sweet and sad.
