“Garrison Keillor made it possible, after twenty years of black humor...to be both funny and nice, hip and winsome, scathing and loving, all in the flick of a single many-barbed quip——The Washington Post Book World

“Keillor’s literary style is as flexible and assured as his vocal delivery. It can slip from mood to mood so subtly and quickly you’re never quite sure where you are.... [His] writing has the silvery slip of running water, so graceful and easy it’s hard to believe it can carry so much that is jagged and unresolved. His integrity lies in his not smoothing away those rough edges in the swift current of his prose; they’re bruisingly, sometimes cuttingly there.” —The Village Voice

About the Author:

Garrison Keillor, author of nearly a dozen books, is founder and host of the acclaimed radio show A Prairie Home Companion and the daily program The Writer's Almanac. He is also a regular contributor to Time magazine.

From Library Journal:

Devoted friends of Lake Wobegon residents will surely welcome this opportunity to be filled in on what some of the gang has been up to and also to learn what Keillor himself has been doing and thinking since he closed down the Prairie Home Companion show in 1987. "I've been on the job and not sunning myself in Denmark," he tells us. And this new collection of 70 or so essays, stories, letters, and poems would seem to bear that out. They follow pretty closely the original Keillor recipe: a little shrewd observation, a slice of nostalgia, a dash of wit, laughter to taste, and a sprinkle of malice for piquancy. His topics are various--too various to particularize. Keillor is at his best, or his distinctive qualities have their freest scope, when he adds a touch of personal reminiscence to his themes. For discriminating palates.
