I don't know of a more totally humorous book. If you have ever enjoyed one of Garrison Keillor's monologs on the Prairie Home Companion show, you will enjoy reading this book even more. His gentle caricatures of the small town people of Lake Wobegon is so funny, I just want everyone to enjoy this book. Have yourself a good time and read it!

"Garrison Keillor tells the story of Lake Wobegon, Minnesota. With almost utter honesty, he chronicles the town's history, explains its traditions (including the Living Flag and the Sons of Knute Ice Melt contest), and gives the complete scoop on all the local celebrities, from Ralph of Ralph's Pretty Good Grocery to Dorothy of the Chatterbox Cafe."

In a book that is destined to become an American classic, Garrison Keillor tells the story of Lake Wobegon, Minnesota (pop. 942). With almost utter honesty, he chronicles the town's history, explains its traditions (including the Living Flag and the Sons of Knute Ice Melt contest), and gives the complete scoop on all the local celebrities, from Ralph of Ralph's Pretty Good Grocery to Dorothy of the Chatterbox Cafe.

Filled with warmth and humor, sadness and tenderness, songs and poems, Lake Wobegon Days is an unforgettable portrait of small-town American life, of why "we are what we are" and why "smart doesn't count for much."

From the back cover: "In a book that is destined to become an American classic, Garrison Keillor tells the story of Lake Wobegon, Mn (pop. 942). With almost utter honesty, he chronicles the town's history, explains its traditions, and gives the complete scoop on all the local celebrities..." I love Garrison Keillor's writings. You will enjoy this one.
