A revised edition of the hilarious Minnesotan culture guide from a former writer for A Prairie Home Companion
Fans of the Minnesota-set movie Fargo will love this uproarious culture guide to all-things Minnesotan. With his dry wit and distinctive voice, Howard Mohr won millions of fans across the country on Garrison Keillor’s radio show A Prairie Home Companion. His popular commercials and ad spots, including one for “Minnesota Language Systems,” became the best of the best of Minnesota humor. Now, Mohr has updated his classic guide, How to Talk Minnesotan, to advise visitors on the use of Twitter and Facebook, cell phone etiquette, and more while in the Land of 10,000 Lakes.
“Ranging in flavor from satiric pungency to lunatic lusciousness, this is glorious, uproarious humor. Or as they say in Minnesota, ‘a heckuva deal, you bet.’”—Booklist
