A group of Lake Wobegonites journey to Rome and then obligingly fade into the background so that Margie Krebsbach can take centre stage.... And that's about as much as I can say without revealing the plot which has some nice twists but really is just an amiable ramble through the usual Lake Wobegon folksiness. None of which I mean to denigrate, and featuring himself as a character in the book was quite a neat trick, but this is small beer really. Perfectly entertaining, of course - Keillor couldn't write badly if he tried.
