Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Those who love Keillor's long-running radio broadcast, A Prairie Home Companion, will cherish this collection of stories harvested from shows aired between 1999 and 2003. The hushed intensity of Keillor's voice lulls listeners into a world where good people live good lives, and for a little while, we are allowed to live them too. Keillor gently coaxes his stories through fertile territory, meandering into a childhood memory and then veering back to a central theme. In one story, a bride at a Labor Day wedding rejects her Lutheran background only to be buoyed up later by these same values. In another, listeners drop in on a tomato growing contest at the county fair. Never have tomatoes seemed so tempting as they do when Keillor describes the row of plump offerings awaiting verdicts. These stories are like the tomatoes: lovingly tended, juicy and bursting with life. Snippets of old-fashioned music dance between each tale, evoking the songs Mrs. Ingqvist, the preacher's wife, might play in the parlor on a Sunday afternoon. With its welcoming atmosphere and the stories' warmly familiar opening and closing lines, this cozy collection reminds listeners that life in Lake Wobegon still goes on, even in these troubled times.

I treat myself on occasion, and others when I am in the mood...with Mr Keillor's hilarious stories from his wonderful imaginary 'home town' of Lake Wobegon. The nostalgic tales are told in such a way as to draw one into the town, its people and its past and present. For anyone with a sense of humor I would highly recommend listening to this box set, find out why all the women are strong, men are good-looking and the children above average.

I love Garrison Keillor and bought this product because I like to listen to the radio in the car. Sadly, I don't find music stations I like so bought these to listen to. I've enjoyed them greatly.

If I could find a "complete" collection of "Prairie Home Companion" I would buy it even if I had to go to work for Fox News to raise the money. Okay, maybe I wouldn't stoop that low, but I would do just about anything else to have this brilliant, charming, incisive, funny, wonderful example of Americana in my home. This particular slice of "Prairie Home Companion" is as entertaining as I expected and I highly recommend it. I laughed, I cried, I ...okay, I didn't cry, but the laughing is a given. Great stuff. "Garrison, come back ...come back Garrison ...come back!"
