The themes of these monologues, presented to a live audience at the Yale Repertory Theater, are typical Keillor: growing old, fatherhood, growing up and not growing up, and the emotional and intellectual chasm that separates men from women. We also visit Jack Kerouac, encounter a Dionysius whose deity card has expired, and hear Giovanni and Figaro debate seduction versus marriage. Keillor earns his living as a reader of his own material. He is masterful and very, very funny. There are none who can match his ability to deliver the punctuation of the printed page. As a writer for radio, he must always have the spoken sentence in mind, and the result is writing meant to be read aloud--by him. A perfect laugh-out-loud listen. R.E.K.
