Publisher's Summary

"It's been a quiet week in Lake Wobegon, my hometown." Garrison Keillor first did his monologue in 1974 to an audience of 20 in a St. Paul theater. Today, more than 2.2 million people tune in each week to hear the tall tales and sweet stories about the citizens of this small Minnesota town. It's a town where "the women are strong, the men are good-looking, and all of the children are above average". Keillor's monologues capture the nuances of country life and of growing up American with eloquence and subtle humor: the luxury of rhubarb pie, the Krebsbachs' thrifty vacation, the vapor lights of Our Lady of Perpetual Responsibility. Step into "the little town that time forgot" and you'll forget it's not your own town, yet feel so close to home.
