'These tales of everyday life in Lake Wobegon - about rhubarb pie, the perils of prophecy, a miserable Thanksgiving, Florian and Myrtle's thrifty vacation, the vapour lights of Our Lady of Perpetual Responsibility - were all recorded on tour. They show an abiding restlessness among Lake Wobegon's residents, especially in March, the month God created to show people who don't drink what a hangover is like. But our women are strong, our children are all above average, and as for us men - well, we could look worse.' Garrison Keillor's funny and touching stories of small-town American life are loved throughout the world. This classic collection of his readings, originally broadcast on American radio, was hugely acclaimed and continues to be amongst his most popular work.
