This review is from: The Keillor Reader (Hardcover)
I sat down, curled up and read this book as soon as it was put into my hands. What can one say? Some are stories I've heard before, some I haven't, some such as `Pontoon Boat' are old standards. If you enjoy Prairie Home Companion or listening and reading stories and recollections, or the Midwest this is the book for you. This is for those who love the printed word, the tangible to hold and read and reread.

There are 44 stories in here, also a few photos of Garrison and mainly his mother. There is an introduction to each story, where the idea came from -what it is about.

The radio show, the live appearances, (if you are fortunate enough to see them) or the CD's have their place - to listen to that sonorous voice..."It's been a quiet week in Lake Woebegone". I'm sure Garrison Keillor would scoff at being called a national treasure, but he is. He captures a time and place and most of all a spirit about a people. The people that make up this country with stories that are comforting, funny and at times poignant. They are what was and is still the heart of America.
