Lake Wobegon Days

Author: Garrison Keillor
Publisher: Penguin Books

Garrison Keillor’s fictional Midwestern town, Lake Wobegon, has long since passed into literary legend. Lake Wobegon Days, his first unforgettable portrait of life in the American small-town named after an Indian word meaning “Here we are!” or “We sat all day in the rain waiting for you”, is a modern classic of warmth, humor and tenderness which introduces the reader to “a cast of characters to rival Mark Twain” (Daily Mail)

“Wryly affectionate and irresistibly funny, it’s a delight read and very good company.” —Miranda Seymour, Evening Standard
