Some say a place is home when you know where all the roads go. Over in Lake Wobegon, all the roads take you there, and it's never been any different. And what you learn along the way is that-quicker than any road sign or street map or pair of shiny red shoes-all you really need is a story to get you from here to there. A story about an ordinary day, any ordinary day. About a young woman and her bridal shower, about a fishing shack and when it's prudent to drive out on the ice. A story about springtime, and air thick with desire, or about the advantages of dynamite when you're digging a grave in winter. Interim pastors, and lutefisk dinners, hunting pheasant in autumn and a food fight with spaghetti. Home is a fine place to listen. No need for a parka. No need to get up. Just light the fire, make some popcorn and hit "Play." The Road Home will take you all the way to where you already are. No place like it. No place at all. Garrison Keillor has been delighting audiences for four decades now with heartfelt, moving, and downright hilarious tales from the shores of Lake Wobegon. Never before collected, these expertly crafted stories are full of gentle humor, genuine emotion, and (more often than not) surprising insights into family, relationships, community, faith, and hope.
