I think as a writer, Garrison Keillor is such a kind intellectual romantic that you can't help but feel comfortable with his character. However, is novel lacks plot and conflict and the edge required to push the reader to finish the book.

As a cultural historian this book was a good read and reminded me of the delight the "Good Lutherans" were to grow up with. My heritage was well presented and it made me reflect on the goodness of people from the Midwest.

Read it if you are charmed by Lutheran Zen New Yorkers.
