Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The screenplay of Garrison Keillor's Robert Altman-directed feature, A Prairie Home Companion.

The dread day has come to the old Fitzgerald Theater on Exchange Street in St. Paul. The show is closing. Radio station WLT (With Lettuce and Tomato) has been sold to a broadcasting conglomerate in Texas. The Friendly Neighbor station, home of "A Prairie Home Companion," and the owner of the theater, is passing from the scene — the wrecking ball is on the crane parked in the alley — and the show's regulars arrive for the broadcast in a state of suspension, hoping that somehow life will go on.

Synopsis:

America's most celebrated radio show is holding its very last broadcast, unbeknownst to the fans filing in to watch it. Coinciding with the release of the film version, A Prairie Home Companion features a special eight-page photo insert from the movie as well as an interview between Garrison Keillor and Robert Altman, who once again showcases his unique style of wit and humor in this fantastic crowd-pleaser.

About the Author

Garrison Keillor, author of nearly a dozen books, is founder and host of the acclaimed radio show A Prairie Home Companion and the daily program The Writer's Almanac. He is also a regular contributor to Time magazine.
