Starred Review. Keillor returns to the snowy Midwest to deliver a Dickensian tale of Chicago yuppies James and Joyce Sparrow, who venture to Looseleaf, N. Dak., to see James's dying uncle, braving a deadly blizzard and equally deadly small town eccentrics. The simple and well-written story is taken to fresh heights by the author's obvious pleasure in reading his own work. This polished production brims with seasonal cheer, caustic wit, and Keillor's signature folksy style. A Viking hardcover. (Nov.)

I love Garrison Keillor but only straining to hear his cadence and inflection sustained me through this book. He is present but it needs more.Published 1 month ago by Kindle Customer

This book was, per usual Garrison Keillor style, full of his fun descriptions and hilarious writing style. I thoroughly enjoyed Christmas Blizzard!!!Published 6 months ago by NINO
This story is bizarre and a little disturbing. Tell your book club to pick something else, and save your money. I gave it one star, but would have given it less had I been able.Published 7 months ago by Stephanie

This is tedious reading. I'm a Garrison fan, but this is like someone who has taken LSD and gotten lost in the blizzard and it goes on, and on, and on. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Olivia Claire`
