Humorous Fiction - Short Story
A short story anthology written by Garrison Keillor, a humorous fictional account of life in small-town Minnesota set in the fictitious heartland town of Lake Wobegon. A collection of 36 of the author's "News from Lake Wobegon" monologues from his radio program A Prairie Home Companion.
A tribute to the life and people of Lake Wobegon, Keillor's fictional American small town where "all the women are strong, all the men are good-looking, and all the children are above average". Prefaced by "A Letter from Copenhagen", as a farewell to Lake Wobegon as Keillor had left A Prairie Home Companion. He, however, returned to the program and to creating Lake Wobegon monologues in the 1990s.
