From the narrator - a skinny Protestant kid fascinated by the Catholic church - we learn of the town's beginnings and of the settlers who made their lives there. A contemporary classic filled with warmth and humour, sadness and tenderness, songs and poems, it is also an unforgettable portrait of small-town America.Hide synopsis

A cleverly written work, like all of Garrison Keillor's, Lake Wobegon Days chronicles the exploits of a small town of 942 residents. Whether it's the story of his eight year old sister making him eating dirt to back up his four year old spiritual convictions or the phone line sharing that could fuel town gossip; the look into small town American nostalgia will not dissappoint.
