A collection of stories by

 
 
An eclectic collection of essays that offer a shot of clarity and wisdom - or just an honest laugh

Garrison Keillor is famous as the host of the radio show A Prairie Home Companion, now in its twenty-seventh year and heard by more than four million listeners each week. His most recent Lake Wobegon novel, Pontoon, was an instant New York Times bestseller that received phenomenal reviews from coast to coast. And he's become the arbiter of fine American poetry through the Good Poems series and as the voice of The Writer's Almanac. But Keillor's sharpest insights and sense of humor shine through most brilliantly in his essays.

Culled from his syndicated newspaper column, 'The Old Scout,' and pieces written for Time magazine and The Atlantic Monthly among others, The Keillor Reader will be embraced by readers who fell in love with Alice through Calvin Trillin's memoirs, laughed out loud with David Sedaris in Me Talk Pretty One Day, or winced knowingly as they read I Feel Bad About My Neck by Nora Ephron. The perfect gift, The Keillor Reader is chock full of notions about how to navigate life's murkier waters, all told with the bracing wit and beautiful turns of phrase that only this literary-minded Midwesterner can deliver.
