Editorial Reviews

Roy Blount Jr.
. . . .[C]alm, acrobatically droll, yet makes no bones about its fondness for decency and its distaste for bullies. -- The New York Times Books of the Century, reviewed February 28, 1982
Esquire
Keillor appears never to invent or imagine a story, but rather to dredge it up from the depths of a collective memory...For all his gravity and his devotion to accurate expression, Keillor writes hilarious stories.
