From bestselling author and beloved New Yorker writer Calvin Trillin, a deeply resonant collection from fifty years of reporting on race and racism across the country.
In this collection, Calvin Trillin returns to the early years of his storied career, when he was a young journalist posted in a fitfully-desegregating Georgia. The people he met there, the country-shaking events he covered, and the changes he saw being made—or blocked—would impact him deeply, and for the next fifty years, Trillin would return to stories about race, racism, and segregation across the entire country. Now, for the first time, the best of Trillin’s pieces on this period and its legacy in the years that followed are collected in one volume. Download and start listening now!
