Suggested Letters For Calvin Trillin and Paul Muldoon

Filed under: Little Words   Tagged: , , , , ,

B, for Trillin, for boudin; for Muldoon, F, for French (although I like the look of these two As, too). In any case, both of these kind and honorable men will have at least twenty-six at their service later this month, when they’ll be inducted into the American Academy of Arts and Letters.


Nice choices, Emily. Though my letter for Trillin would be “T,” as in “taureaux piscine.”
