A Keillor Classic
on 17 November 2010
OK I am a big fan of Mr. Keillor . See my other reports on his recent work .
Here he is at his very best which is exceptionally good in his beloved Lake Wobegon .
It is side splitting , laugh out loud funny . The usual assortment of characters is here in the familiar locations : Pastor Ingqvist ,Clint Bunsen , The Norwegian Bachelors , The Chatterbox Cafe , The Sidetrack Tap .
He pokes fun mercilessly , but nicely at The Lutheran folk . Even the agnostics are Lutheran agnostics----it is a Lutheran God they don't believe in !! But among the fun there is another level causing one to consider ones own attitudes and prejudices if only for a moment before the next laugh .
This volume should be available on the National Health for anyone suffering from depression . It is that good .
Read it all at once or pick it up from time to time . Either way I promise you won't be disappointed .
