"New York is a hard place to visit, but a pretty good place to live," says Garrison Keillor, and on this humorous and insightful audio collection he explains why. This Grammy Award-nominated collection comprises 10 monologues in which Keillor reflects on New York City life through the eyes of a transplanted Minnesotan. These stories are among Keillor's very best work.

GARRISON KEILLOR is America’s favorite storyteller. For more than 35 years, as the host of A Prairie Home Companion, he has captivated millions of listeners with his weekly News from Lake Wobegon monologues. A Prairie Home Companion is heard on hundreds of public radio stations, as well as America One, the Armed Forces Networks, Sirius Satellite Radio, and via a live audio webcast.
Keillor is also the author of several books and a frequent contributor to national publications including Time, The New Yorker, and National Geographic, in addition to writing his own syndicated column. He has been awarded a National Humanities Medal from the National Endowment of the Humanities. When not touring, he resides in St. Paul, Minnesota.
This is Keillor at his best--before a live audience--describing New York to New Yorkers. The applause and laughter, as well as Keillor's reactions to his listeners, enhance the material. He sings and talks, separating the monologues with short piano pieces. Local Man should be heard again and again. E.S.B. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
