My Little Town: Stories from Lake Wobegon

Garrison Keillor, read by the author. HighBridge Audio, unabridged, three CDs, 3.25 hrs., $29.95 ISBN 978-1-61174-550-4

If there’s something worth talking about in the fictional town of Lake Wobegon, Garrison Keillor has probably covered it on his radio show, A Prairie Home Companion. But despite his decades of telling Wobegon tales, listeners will find this latest compilation of recent radio segments an entertaining listen. Though Keillor’s stories from Lake Wobegon move in all directions, this batch focuses on passing seasons, passing opportunities, and passing on. With his decades of experience in radio, Keillor proves a master behind the microphone, ably creating an intimacy with listeners, who will feel as if they are sitting down for a private talk with an old friend. Though some stories pack more of a punch than others, listeners will find the collection and another trip to Lake Wobegon enjoyable and full of idiosyncratic laughs.
