Travels with Alice

Calvin Trillin. Avon Books, $9 (0pp) ISBN 978-0-380-71209-0

The humorist explores Europe and the Caribbean with his family, commenting on the events, etiquette and food they encounter. ``If he were a stand-up comedian, these essays would be called routines,'' PW stated. ``The peripatetic, insatiably curious Trillin is invariably entertaining.'' (Nov.)
