Product Description

“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.

A Prairie Home Companion features wonderful guest stars and music, but from week to week what we really want to hear is Keillor relate his mythical news, which always sounds so personal and spontaneous. This collection features 18 humorous, insightful, and sometimes scatological examples.”

“Listeners will find the collection and another trip to Lake Wobegon enjoyable and full of idiosyncratic laughs.”
      —Publishers Weekly

“Garrison Keillor’s wonderful brand of folksy charm distinguishes this nostalgic series that cherishes hard work and country culture.”
      —Midwest Book Review
