American Stories brings together 12 extended nonfiction pieces that have appeared over the past seven years in The New Yorker. "If Truman Capote invented the nonfiction novel, as he claimed, and Norman Mailer devised variations on it, Trillin has perfected the nonfiction short story; moreover, his craftsmanship can contend with that of either Capote or Mailer at their best".--Kirkus Reviews.
