Keillor really is a genius! These stories, I listened to them during my drive to Del Rio and back, were at time humorous, creative, off the wall and deeply touching.
a good hoot, but not a distraction as I was driving.
I do love a good Garrison Keillor story, especially when read by the author. This collection is of some of his best, some from his paper columns, and some performed before an audience at one of his many shows. Some are quite dark, some just laugh out loud funny, but all beautifully written, with his customary self depreciation, and with just enough bleakness to give everyday events an insight into what it is to be human. Really liked Family honeymoon, and also Meeting famous people.
I enjoyed a lot of these stories, some I think I just didn't relate to. I especially liked the one about the smokers and his thoughts after a fall. Since it was an audio edition, I don't remember the true titles (forgive me, Mr. Keillor). It is worth a listen if you have a few extra minutes, he has a gift at story telling. :0)
Listened to this audiobook and will give it to my sister. It's good classic Keillor stuff. Unashamedly a bit preachy, but never takes himself too seriously. Not all of these are gems, but neither are my reviews. Makes me want to write like crazy. Can't get enough of the guy from Lake Wobegon.
I did not realize he wrote more than Lake Wobegon... this was very entertaining, especially read by the author on audio! I plan to read more of his work.
Some real good short stories. My favorite ones were the quit smoking story and the 5 week family vacation. Give it a listen and tell me your favorite~
Hit and miss. Some really entertaining stories, but an equal number of forgettable ones. I enjoy Keillor but this was a bit uneven.

I laughed through the entire audio of this book, and I don't even like baseball or softball. Great stories.
