Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A Prairie Home Companion celebrates that one person who manages to make you feel that you're special and that you aren't living up to your potential--all in the same sentence. Skits, songs, and stories from Garrison and the regular cast cover the gamut of all that goes into and comes out of motherhood.

Motherhood is a popular topic on A Prairie Home Companion, and not just on Mother's Day. It's about time someone gathered the best bits into an homage to Mom. This funny, affectionate, poignant collection honors the woman who gave up her own sense of self-worth for a life of mindless drudgery, day in and day out, all for you. The woman who sticks around when everyone else in your life turns away. Who insists Don't worry about me, I'm fine. All I need is to know that you're happy. Who doesn't leave messages because motherhood is not about messages, it's about love. Share it with your mom or give it to a mom you know. If you're a mom yourself, hand it to your child and say Listen. It's the least he or she can do.

Synopsis:

A Prairie Home Companion celebrates motherhood as only they can: with equal parts laughter and love--and maybe just a little guilt.

Synopsis:

Collected from live radio broadcasts of A Prairie Home Companion, these humorous and heart-warming stories and songs celebrate the ups and downs of motherhood. Includes the News from Lake Wobegon, and guest appearances from Robin and Linda Williams, Inga Swearingen, Vern Sutton, Prudence Johnson, the Rankin Family, and more.

"She brought you forth out of the cloud of genetics and fed and clothed you and taught you to wipe yourself and say Please and Thank You and never expected you to pay her back, only that you behave appropriately and try to make something of yourself and not land in prison but if you had, she'd love you because after all she's your Mother."

      --Garrison Keillor
