Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Lake Wobegon U.S.A. is the eagerly anticipated successor to News From Lake Wobegon (one of the bestselling spoken-word audio ever) and More News From Lake Wobegon. This collection contains 17 touching, exquisitely funny monologues from Garrison Keillor recorded during American Radio Company broadcasts from tour stops all over the country. The tales, says Keillor, are about "the luxury of rhubarb pie, the perils of prophecy, Florian and Myrtle's thrifty vacation, the vapor lights of Our Lady of Perpetual Responsibility. . . ." They are also about joy, grief, dreams, luck, and mysteries—about the extraordinary moments of wonder that illuminate our ordinary lives.

Contents:

Fertility: The Kresbach's Vacation; Prophet; The Six Labors of Father Wilmer; Fertility

Patience: Aunt Ellie; Duke's 25th; Jobhunting; You're Not the Only One

Youth: Blue Devils; Nostalgia; O Christmas Tree; Pageant; Messy Shoes

Rhubarb:  Rhubarb; Sweet Corn; The Sun's Gonna Shine Someday; Yellow Ribbon

Synopsis:

A collection of 17 Lake Wobegon monologues from live radio broadcasts.
