Stories, monologues, and essays by Garrison Keillor, founder and host of "A Prairie Home Companion"
The first retrospective from "New York Times" bestselling author Garrison Keillor celebrates the humor and wisdom of this master storyteller. With an introduction and headnotes by the author, along with accompanying photographs and memorabilia, "The Keillor Reader "brings together a full range of Keillor's work. Included are the Pontoon monologue, in which twenty-four Lutheran pastors capsize a boat as a parasail and hot-air balloon maneuver above; the Alaska adventures of professional wrestler Jimmy Big Boy Valenti; a new version of Casey at the Bat; an imaginative memoir of life at the "New Yorker"; and a set of precepts for life, What Have We Learned So Far?
