#152341.  GARRISON KEILLOR:  LEAVING HOME.
#152341. GARRISON KEILLOR: LEAVING HOME.

This collection of 36 stories set in Lake Wobegon is taken from monologues performed on “A Prairie Home Companion”, Keillor's radio show. Each one chronicles some kind of leave-taking or homecoming: trips to Minneapolis, high school graduations, family members returning to Lake Wobegon for Christmas, etc. Keillor has a rare gift for celebrating and finding humour in commonplace events, and his affection for his characters shines through. These short narratives survive the transition from performance to print beautifully. Some tales are wildly hilarious, others gently poignant but all are simply wonderful. 258 pp. Softcover.
