Editorial Reviews

Review

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.”
      —AudioFile


“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

Garrison Keillor has been a master storyteller and an American treasure for decades, but this collection of "Lake Wobegon" monologues is only a pale shadow of his previous recordings. There are occasional bright spots, such as "Tundra Swans," but most of these stories have neither the folk wisdom nor the wry humor that have been Keillor's trademarks. This collection relies too much upon the extension of previous material and upon Junior High School humor, including a puerile fascination with flatulence. Hopefully Keillor will rejuvenate his talent, otherwise I'd stick with the earlier collections.

Others have remarked about the tiresome inclusion of way too many flatulence jokes. They are right. Keillor is not at his best here. But, still, the story telling is vivid and engaging. The sequence of stories recounting the arrival of Pastor Liz was especially good.

This will be of interest to those who already know and love Keillor's story telling.

If one is new to him, however, earlier stories like Bruno The Fishing Dog and The Royal Family are better introductions to the Lake Woebegone universe.
