Description

"It's been a quiet week in Lake Wobegon, my home town..." Each week, more than four million radio listeners hear these words, and settle in for some old-fashioned, up-to-the-minute storytelling. During live broadcasts of A Prairie Home Companion, Garrison Keillor takes us to "the little town that time forgot and the decades cannot improve," where "the women are strong, the men are good-looking, and all the children are above average." These expertly crafted tales touch the heart and tickle the funnybone. Warm, poignant, often hilarious, each is a classic of live storytelling, full of gentle humor, genuine emotion, and (more often than not) surprising insights into family, community, love, faith, and hope.

Professional reviews

"Garrison Keillor brings some of his most poignant and hilarious "tales from Lake Wobegon" to this terrific set. Whether hearing his sonorous tones regaling us with tales of "Flying Elvises on the Fourth of July" or "The Little Girl and the Deadly Snake," among others, listeners are treated to live renditions of masterpieces of modern Americana. When Keillor is at his best, it's like O. Henry meets Twain, and the sadness, irony, and deep understanding of the human condition found in all of his writing come clearly through his voice. Even longtime fans of the Lake Wobegon stories will want this on their audio bookshelvesâ and it's a great tool to introduce newcomers to Minnesota's best-loved fictional town. D.J.B.
