About the book:

Larry Wyler is a writer from a small-town in Minnesota. He has revered The New Yorker since he learnt to read and, following the success of his first novel, is invited to join the magazine's Manhattan corridors of power, populated by such literary gods as JD Salinger, John Updike and EB White. Larry is a good man at heart; weak-willed but good. Although he loves his fiercely Democrat social worker wife, his literary success goes immediately to his head and other parts of his anatomy. Downfall is inevitable and when writer's block hits Larry spends time in a personal wilderness, crossing paths with a small but select medley of New York oddballs and learning life's lessons the hard way.

Then, in the depths of his down-turn, Larry is thrown a lifeline. Becoming the agony uncle for his home-town newspaper, he finds his writing flows naturally and his innate understanding of the human condition reveals itself, with honesty, humour and compassion. Through his lovable, luckless protagonist Larry, Keillor shows us that a life without love is worthless: it's short and tough so be kind, try not to hurt people, love and be loved. --Carey Green
