About the Author

Humorist Garrison Keillor was born Gary Edward Keillor in Anoka, Minnesota on August 7, 1942. He began using the pen name Garrison at the age of thirteen. He received a B.A. from the University of Minnesota in 1966 and paid for his tuition by working at the campus radio station. In 1974, he wrote mostrar mais an essay for the New Yorker about the Grand Ole Opry, which led to his live radio program, A Prairie Home Companion. Stories from Prairie Home were collected and published, but his debut as a novelist was in 1985 with Lake Wobegon Days. His other novels include WLT: A Radio Romance, The Book of Guys, Wobegon Boy, Me by Jimmy (Big Boy) Valente, and Good Poems, American Places. He has also written the children's books Cat, You Better Come Home, The Old Man Who Loved Cheese, and The Sandy Bottom Orchestra. He won a Grammy Award for his recording of Lake Wobegon Days and was inducted into the National Radio Hall of Fame in 1994. Keillor received a National Humanities Medal from the National Endowment for the Humanities in 1999. In September 2007, Keillor was awarded the John Steinbeck Award.

This is a wonderful collection of poetry compiled by Garrison Keillor. Some are old, some modern and even though it's missing "In a Station of the Metro", it's a very enjoyable collection. :-)

My love of "A Prairie Home Companion" has died, but I think I will always love Garrison Keillor's "Writer's Almanac" and this collection of excellent poems. I really enjoyed reading one a day (though I wasn't great about sticking to it for a whole year). So from one Professional English Major to another, kudos to Mr. Keillor for his great picks! (Though he really shouldn't sing quite so much on APHC.)

Useful, but not necessary to have listened to a Lake Wobegon monologue, as the stories contained in this book are in the same vein, and could well do with being read aloud[return][return]Slow and sweet to read
