Life among the Lutherans provides a collection of letters from Prairie Home Companion. If you're a fan, as I am, you'll love this volume. It provides keen insight into the character of the upper Midwest, but especially the Scandinavian immigrants who populated much of Minnesota. It's light reading, but the final chapter also reveals a glimpse of the darker side of this culture.

I had heard some of the jokes before but there were new ones and in greater detail in this book. it is a easy read and relaxing to read. I passed the book on to others and some of them even bought it also as they liked this book.
