Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“It’s been a quiet week in Lake Wobegon, my home town . . .” Lake Wobegon has been Garrison Keillor’s fictional home town—and America’s—for almost 40 years. Many of us have grown up with “the little town that time forgot and the decades cannot improve.” The Chatterbox Café, the Sidetrack Tap, the Church of Our Lady of Perpetual Responsibility, the Bunsens and the Krebsbachs, the Lake Wobegon Whippets—these are places, people, and sports teams we know and love, thanks to Keillor’s ability to weave a story and tell it live.

Never before collected, these expertly crafted tales are full of gentle humor, genuine emotion, and (more often than not) surprising insights into family, relationships, community, faith, and hope.

Review:

"If there's something worth talking about in the fictional town of Lake Wobegon, Garrison Keillor has probably covered it on his radio show, A Prairie Home Companion. But despite his decades of telling Wobegon tales, listeners will find this latest compilation of recent radio segments an entertaining listen. Though Keillor's stories from Lake Wobegon move in all directions, this batch focuses on passing seasons, passing opportunities, and passing on. With his decades of experience in radio, Keillor proves a master behind the microphone, ably creating an intimacy with listeners, who will feel as if they are sitting down for a private talk with an old friend. Though some stories pack more of a punch than others, listeners will find the collection and another trip to Lake Wobegon enjoyable and full of idiosyncratic laughs."

Synopsis:

An all-new collection of Lake Wobegon monologues selected from live broadcasts of A Prairie Home Companion.
