In this, the first collection of Lake Wobegon monologues, Garrison Keillor tells us more about some of the people he introduced in print in Lake Wobegon Days, and about some others, many of whom are leaving home. This collection of thirty-six stories is his farewell tribute to life in Lake Wobegon - "where all the women are strong, all the men are good-looking, and all the children are above average."

This is a wonderful collection of short stories as only Garrison Keillor can tell. They will take you back to a time when people left their doors unlocked and everyone knew everyone. It was a very heart warming book to read.
