Garrison Keillor is the consummate storyteller, gifted with the rare ability, both in print and in performance, to hold an audience spellbound with his tales of ordinary people whose lives contain extraordinary moments of humor, tenderness, and grace. This exclusive recording of Garrison Keillor reading a carefully edited abridgement of the book also includes a few segments taken from live performances recorded during a fundraising tour for public radio stations in 1985.

Learn why Lake Wobegon never made it onto the map and meet “the last honest men in America”–Norwegian bachelor farmers. The book follows a novel format but includes several of your favorite stories from the live radio program A Prairie Home Companion.

"What has always hooked me … is Keillor's ability to tread a line delicate as a cobweb between satire and sentiment. He never romanticizes the past, nor small-town virtues. In the great tradition of humorists, he is a moralist, who perceives the incredible mixture of little vices and virtues that everyone has, including himself …: The book is not simply 337 pages of News from Lake Wobegon®. It is fuller, richer, more serious, but also funnier and franker." –The Cleveland Plain Dealer

“A comic anatomy of what is small and ordinary and therefore potentially profound and universal in American life … Keillor’s strength as a writer is to make the ordinary extraordinary.” –Chicago Tribune
