Am I the last guy on the planet to find out about this writer? Those of you who read the New Yorker will know him (writing there for 15 years). I recently read about his first book "From the Moon to Paris" and happened upon his most recent work "Through the Children's Gate" at the library last week. I'm finding this latest collection fascinating (I've only started). Both books consist of essays from the New Yorker and ones for the book. His work reminds me a lot of Calvin Trillin's writings.
For those who are not familiar with him, here is an interview: http://www.identitytheory.com/people/birnbaum7.html
I urge all to give him a try.
