      A longtime staff writer at The New Yorker, Calvin Trillin is also The Nation’s deadline bestsellers range from the memoir About Alice to Obliviously On He Sails: The Bush Administration in lives in Greenwich Village, which he describes as “a neighborhood where people from the suburbs come on weekends to test their car alarms.”. Random House says he has promised to pen his final stanzas within three days after the election so the book can be in stores in early December. Trillin's previous efforts in this vein -- A Heckuva Job () and Obliviously On He Sails () -- were bestsellers. According to the publisher, Trillin's current work-in-progress is a narrative poem.

      With the same barbed wit he displayed in the bestsellers Deciding the Next Decider, Obliviously On He Sails, and A Heckuva Job, America's deadline poet trains his sights on the Tea Party ("These folks were quick to vocally condemn/All handouts but the ones that went to them") and the slapstick field of contenders for the Republican nomination.   Novelist/humorist/“verse columnist” Calvin Trillin missed his scheduled Town Hall appearance for health reasons. Perhaps it’s for the best, since not only is he restored to his usual disarmingly wry vigor, but he’ll bring with him a new book, Dogfight: The Presidential Campaign in Verse (to complement his last collection, Quite Enough of Calvin.

      I mean, George Bush is -- I mean, the first book was called "Obliviously on He Sails" and that was from a poem I wrote, a two-line poem when his college marks came out during the primaries without much effect on the campaign. And the two-line poem went "obliviously on he sails with marks not quite as good as Quayle's.". Obliviously on he sails, With marks not quite as good as Quayle’s. Or why as CEO he wouldn’t know What Halliburton’s books were meant to show. And as he speaks I’ve kept a careful check On when his head’s held crooked on his neck. The code is broken, after years of trying.
