Keillor is also the author of several books and a frequent contributor to national publications including Time, The New Yorker, and National Geographic, in addition to writing his own syndicated column. He has been awarded a National Humanities Medal from the National Endowment of the Humanities. When not touring, he resides in St. Paul, Minnesota.

From AudioFile

Listeners may find themselves caught in "driveway moments" while enjoying this new collection of stories featuring everyone's favorite radio detective. More than a series of jokes and puns, these philosophical ruminations on silliness are entertaining. It takes years of the actors working together for a presentation like this to work so effectively. These episodes employ a wonderful array of voices and special effects, led by the dulcet tones of the "Mark Twain of the Midwest," Garrison Keillor. As soon as you can, book a trip to the twelfth floor of the Acme Building and spend some time with Guy Noir, Private Eye.

I don't know what CD the below reviewers are reviewing, but The "Adventures of Guy Noir : Radio Private Eye" contains actual, full episodes of "Guy Noir" from PHC -- guest stars, audience laughing, everything. If you like it on the radio show, then this is for you because it's from the radio show.

I am a professional truck driver from Quebec and I discovered the wonderful world of Garrison Keillor two years ago while listening to NPR Radio. It took me several months to find out who he was and finally found Prairie Home Companion via the Internet and listened to many of the programs from the archives. Since then I have religiously tuned in to its weekly program with News from Lake Wobegon and Guy Noir, Private Eye. When I bought the CD "The Adventures of Guy Noir" about the famous Private Eye; my wife and children all fell in love with its hilarious stories. I regularly listen to his adventures in my truck while travelling all over Canada and the USA. Guy Noir a.k.a Garrison Keillor, you are the best. I can't wait to get "the rest of the stories."

I am a long time listener of A Prairie Home Companion. I always look forward to Saturday evenings at 6, when my local station airs APHC. The show is great and pokes fun at politics, headline news, and just old funnies in a non-threatening way.

Guy Noir is my second favorite part of the show, following Garrison Keillor's "News from Lake Wobegon." Each week the theme song is played and Guy Noir is involved in a wonderful sketch filled to the brim with laughs as he goes and solves mysteries, for he is Private Eye.

Fans of this bit on Garrison Keillor's radio show love Guy Noir...and so do I. These stories are nostalgic and cozy. The 'nostalgia' can be grasped best by older folks who have heard original radio dramas from the pre-TV era. I was a precocious five-year-old then...and my family had the means and the demographic good fortune to acquire very early TV programming. This genre lived on when we were listening to the radio in an automobile. I 'bless' Garrison Keillor for keeping this tradition alive. We have heard 'Guy Noir' segments off and on: they are always entertaining. I note that expert reviewers have their complaints about this series. I bought this offering for two reasons: I love audio books for long-distance travels and I can imagine listening to them as my eyesight fades. This set does not disappoint me, especially since I was only an occasional listener and much of this content was 'fresh' for me.

Guy Noir is my favorite part of PHC and I adored this 2-CD set. I wish it were longer. Absolutely hilarious.

The FIRST Guy Noir release was more faithful to the original conceit of Noir - as a hard-boiled detective talking tough with his clients, his friends and his women.

Here, you get something else: Guy's much more self-conscious. While interacting with PHC guest stars would normally promise some greater variety, it is honestly not too forthcoming. He has become fussy and self-absorbed, and a lot of the great tough talk present in earlier episodes is missing here.

It's a good listen - and I love PHC, too. It's just not as good as the very first release...

I love Guy Noir. It's a better spoof of hard boiler detective fiction than Bernie Gunther
