Keillor's radio staple captured live in a multi-CD package makes us realize how remarkable his years of storytelling have been. His program has always been nouveau-Old Time Radio, but his Wobegon stories are distinctly different from typical OTR fare--intelligent, darkly and delicately funny, and touching, the work of a modern American author on a par with John Irving. As a storyteller, Keillor favors the serio-comedic style, veering from snide asides to hushed, whispered moments of poetry. His voice is weathered, cultured, yet down-home and folksy--a visitor you would warmly welcome into your home. D.J.B. 2004 Audie Award Winner
