Mini-Review: The Keillor Reader by Garrison Keillor

The Keillor Reader

As a big fan of Garrison Keillor, I’m always excited to see a new published offering hit the market.

This collection, celebrating his fortieth anniversary of “A Prairie Home Companion” contains a nice mix of the many different types and styles of writing that make Keillor one of the most unique, distinctive voices working today. The most fascinating part isn’t just the stories, poems and essays Keillor has chosen for this collection, but instead are his notes on the creation and writing of the various pieces. These thoughts are almost like a DVD commentary, providing readers and fans with insights into how he works and the business of being creative.

If you’re a Keillor fan, this is a must-have. I know I’ll be adding a hardcover copy to my Garrison Keillor shelf.

In the interest of full disclosure, I received a digital ARC of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
