Summary:

Winner of Publishers Weekly Listen Up Award for Best Short Stories Wherever Garrison Keillor's imagination takes him, the road back to Lake Wobegon is always a delightful one. His story collections about 'the little town that time forgot' are his most popular; this Lake Wobegon collection features 11 wonderful stories recorded from live radio broadcasts of A Prairie Home Companion.Life these days in Lake Wobegon means shirtsleeve autumns and late-starting winters. Meanwhile, a bus full of Lutheran men attends the Risk Takers convention in Minneapolis to do the unthinkable: express their emotions. Pastor Ingqvist interviews for a job at the Mall of America. The Ingqvists' elderly dog discovers the fountain of youth. The website for the World's Largest Pile of Burlap Bags (www.wlpbb) opens a window on Lake Wobegon to the world.And as a special bonus, Life These Days includes a never-before-available Keillor short story, 'Spring.'Contents:Gladys Hits A Raccoon; The World's Largest Pile; My Cousin Rose; The Risk Takers; Pastor Ingqvist at the Mall; Hunting Stories; Sorrows of January; Clarence Cleans His Roof; Miracle of the Pastor's Dog; War of the Krebsbachs; Graduation

    Keillor's characters are so vivid and so well drawn that they come to life for the listener. I howled with laughter at each of the episodes on this tape. Perhaps because Keillor created the stories for audio, not for a book, they are the perfect entertainment in the car.

    If I didn't hold Keillor to a higher standard, this might be a 3-4. If he was choosing "best of" material, he didn't choose wisely. Still good just not Keillor good.
