Lake Wobegon Days
By

Rating
Lake Wobegon, seat of Mist County, is located somewhere in the middle of the state (but not on the map) and named after an Indian word meaning 'Here we are!' or 'We sat all day in the rain waiting for you'.Lake Wobegon Days is the marvellous chronicle of this imaginary place, narrated by a skinny kid with wire-rimmed glasses who is raised as a strait-laced Protestant but is fascinated by the Catholic Church (he dreams of being burnt at the stake) and by the notion of a more exotic family background (he'd like to be called Keillorini). Filled with warmth, humour, and tenderness, Lake Wobegon Days is an unforgettable portrait of small-town America.

About the Author

Garrison Keillor, 'America's tallest radio humorist', was born in 1942 in a small town in Minnesota, into a family of Scottish fundamental protestants. The family were expert at entertaining themselves with evenings of storytelling. In 1966 when he graduated his ambition was to write - three years later the big break came when he sold a story to the New Yorker. He gave up his part time radio station job to concentrate on writing but it was an assignment from the New Yorker in 1974, which tempted him back to radio. Writing about the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville brought back childhood memories of the warmth and spontaneity of the medium, and the result was Keillor's immensely popular live radio show, 'A Prairie Home Companion'. By 1987 it had become a phenomenal success and was being broadcast nationwide. Lake Wobegon Days, derived from these monologues, became a bestseller in the United States and then the UK, Australia and New Zealand.
