Garrison Keillor is tender and urgent in this collection of "News from Lake Wobegon," recorded in 1985. Listeners to the modern show will find a less sure, more ruminative Keillor—every bit the entrancing storyteller he is today, but with the sense that the landscape of rural Minnesota is still unexplored territory. These stories of ordinary people experiencing the extraordinary simplicity of life illuminate the theme of hope with touchingly absurd mishaps of marriage, oddball observations of the changing seasons, and a plot by Pastor Ingqvist to put all his congregation on their toes. This brief volume clocks in at just over hour but gives Keillor ample room to capture the essence of small-town life in the way that only he can.
