If you haven't read American Fried by Calvin Trillin you need to stop what you're doing, purchase it then sit back to read one of the great books about American food.
It's part one of what has become known as the "tummy trilogy", Trillin's three part book series on eating in America.
Craig Claiborne referred to Trillin as the "Walt Whitman of American Eats" and it could not be more apt of a descriptor.
Trillin is the preeminent man of American food letters and one of the great writers still alive and typing.
And he's coming to Austin April 11th for the Book Festival
Mr Trillin is famous, or infamous, for his love of the tiny little wayside diners and backroads eats of America so put you're thinking cap on before you respond.
This man loves his food and was writing hilarious accounts of eating when Bourdain was still matriculating at Vassar and decades before the current food mania held the world in its' grip.
Where should Calvin Trillin eat while he's in Austin?
