Church People: The Lutherans of Lake Wobegonby Garrison Keillor
Synopses & Reviews
Skits, songs, stories, and more from A Prairie Home Companion reveal the secret world of a stalwart people.
When you fly Lutheran Air, there's no first class, meals are potluck with assignments by rows (rows 1-6, bring rolls; rows, 7-15, salad), all fares are by freewill offering, and the plane doesn't land until the budget is met.
Welcome to the Land of Lutherans, where people drive Fords, wear cardigans, go to church at Third Lutheran (which used to be called First Lutheran, but Lutherans are more comfortable with being Third), drink a lot of coffee, serve chow mein noodles on tuna hot dish, work hard, and don't make a fuss. Selected from live broadcasts of A Prairie Home Companion, this collection celebrates the kindest people on God's green earth--except for the mean ones. If you're not a Lutheran, you'll laugh out loud. If you are, you'll smile as hard as you can.
Lutherans have given us hotdish, church ladies, self-effacement, and solid advice ("Watch your manners, make yourself useful, and mind your own business"). Now they've given us a new Prairie Home Companion collection. Well, now, don't make a fuss about it. . . .
