The "Prairie Home Companion" host and creator returns to Lake Wobegon as he follows 14-year-old Gary through his coming of age with characteristic dry wit and pointed observations. Keillor's deep voice and slow, deliberate diction transport the listener to this sleepy small town being shaken up by rock and roll. Anyone familiar with Keillor's performances on National Public Radio will welcome this warm return to the heartland. Those visiting Lake Wobegon for the first time will find themselves right at home with Keillor's easy Midwestern drawl. And Keillor's insight into the workings of Gary's mind is heartwarming, poignant, and hilarious as Gary struggles to balance his religion with his raging interest in the female form. H.L.S. 2002 Grammy Nominee for Best Spoken Word Album (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/MAR 02]
