Keillor's follow up to Lake Wobegon Dayshas his protagonist, John Tollefson, returning years later to Minnesota for a life-changing visit.
Wobegon Boy is the story of John Tollefson, last seen in Lake Wobegon Days leaving home, now a forty-something Norwegian bachelor public-radio manager living in upstate New York.
Amidst his tribulations—his gloomily neurotic staff, his controlling boss, his bumpy relationship with his querulous father, his love affair with a Columbia University historian—John returns to Minnesota for a visit. There, sitting at the Sidetrack Tap and the Chatterbox Cafe—talking and listening to the people he has known his whole life—he discovers what is truly important to him.
