The latest in a line of bestselling collections that began with News from Lake Wobegon, this set selects monologues from four years (1999-2002) of live radio programs. Some were broadcast from the Fitzgerald Theatre, the show's St. Paul home. Others were recorded on the road in Dublin, Pasadena, Grand Forks, and other exotic places.

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.
Keillor's radio staple captured live in a multi-CD package makes us realize how remarkable his years of storytelling have been. His program has always been nouveau-Old Time Radio, but his Wobegon stories are distinctly different from typical OTR fare--intelligent, darkly and delicately funny, and touching, the work of a modern American author on a par with John Irving. As a storyteller, Keillor favors the serio-comedic style, veering from snide asides to hushed, whispered moments of poetry. His voice is weathered, cultured, yet down-home and folksy--a visitor you would warmly welcome into your home. D.J.B. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
