Keillor visits his "hometown" of Lake Wobegon, where "the women are strong, the men are good-looking, and all the children are above average." He mixes homespun philosophy with humorous bits such as "Shows That Are No Longer With Us"--like "Lutheran Whispers," the side-splitting "Parade of Products "(Mr. Pickle, Bertha's Kitty Boutique), and the bouncy, toe-tapping sounds of the Night o' Rest Motel Chorus and Orchestra playing such "classics" as "Don't Pass Your Kisses Around." It's all perfectly paced, impeccably put together, and as cozy, warm, and comfortable as an old pair of slippers. A true collector's item. M.T.B.
