About the book:

 Lake Wobegon Days is about the way our beliefs, desires and fears tail off into abstractions--and get renewed from time to time. . . this book, unfolding Mr. Keillor's full design, is a genuine work of American history. The New York Times

A comic anatomy of what is small and ordinary and therefore potentially profound and universal in American life&Keillors strength as a writer is to make the ordinary extraordinary. Chicago Tribune

Keillors laughs come dear, not cheap, emerging from shared virtue and good character, from reassuring us of our neighborliness and strength&.His true subject is how daily life is shot with grace. Keillor writes a prose that can be turned to laughter, to tears&to compassion or satire, to a hundred effects. He is a brilliant parodist. San Francisco Chronicle
