Lake Wobegon Days By Garrison Keillor

Lake Wobegon Days
by Garrison Keillor

A chronicle of this imaginary place, narrated by a skinny kid with wire-rimmed glasses who is raised as a straitlaced Protestant but is fascinated by the Catholic Church (he dreams of being burnt at the stake) and by the notion of a more exotic family background (he'd like to be called Keillorini).

Lake Wobegon Days Summary


Lake Wobegon Days is the marvellous chronicle of an imaginary place located somewhere in the middle of the state (but not on the map) and named after an Indian word meaning 'Here we are!' or 'We sat all day in the rain waiting for you.' 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.
