Wonderful, hilarious book---as are all the others Wobegon books.

John Tollefson, the son of Bryon and Mary of Lake Wobegon, leaves Minnesota for upstate New York to manage a public radio station at a college for academically challenged children of financially gifted parents. Free from the Dark Lutherans of his hometown, he makes a pleasant bachelor life for himself in New York. He buys a new house and paints it a deep gold. He has a bright idea for a restaurant specializing in fresh produce. He falls in love with a historian named Alida Freeman. He is presented with public radio's coveted Wally Award. This is one of those "laugh out loud" books.
