I got hooked on Keillor's voice via NPR and saw this at the library. Starts fast, paints a taut image of a kid with artsy sensibilities growing up in rural Minnesota. Injects Lutheranism without seeming preachy. Takes no risks with language but doesn't waste words either. You could probably do without the long middle section. Would recommend the audiobook read by the author vs. reading it yourself.
