Product Description

Review

Praise for Garrison Keillor:

"Keillor is very clearly a genius. His range and stamina alone are incredible . . . he has the genuine wisdom of a Cosby or Mark Twain." --"Slate"

"America's foremost humorist and social pundit . . . Keillor's running commentary about the human condition has the uncanny ability to home in on the pulse of America." --"PBS"

"Keillor has a way of reconciling seeming contradictions. A purveyor of all things folksy and down-home, he is a highly cultivated, worldly man." --"AARP"

HASH(0x9ce3f108) out of 5 stars Another GK must have Nov. 13 2013
By CB1966 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
As with all Garrison Keillor works, this book is a must have for seeing life a bit more on the light side. Garrison has an extraordinary way of helping us see the importance of finding the humor in our everyday lives. This collection of poems is a great work for the sofa or bedside table. The poems can be read and reread. Garrison writes with such color.

I like Garrison Keillor's writing, and this poetry book is not a disappointment. His wit and humor are evident throughout.

HASH(0x9ce3f678) out of 5 stars Fun poems, and yes, some are delightly vulgar, if not lyrically perfect. Oct. 30 2013
By Thomas Schumacher - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Keillor's longevity as a story teller and writer, is in part that he can keep pushing against the edges of aging, judgmental thinking, and out-and-out prude hood. This is what draws nervous laughter from his audiences of his radio shows and readers of his verse/stories. Freud would be impressed that there are still, in our sociopathic world, enough psychoneurotic reactions to fuel our laughter and act as a source of (generally) guiltless fun.

HASH(0x9dbec42c) out of 5 stars Brilliant! Feb. 24 2014
By L. M. Fox - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
What can I say except Garrison Keillor is a national treasure. His title is true. I have found some of the verse absolutely laugh out loud...for instance "Psalm". But, reading through this volume has been a positive joy.

HASH(0x9d03ff9c) out of 5 stars Humor at its best Aug. 3 2014
By Josephine Irvine-Groves - Published on Amazon.com

This poet/broadcaster never fails to entertain. In the style of Ogden Nash and just as thought-provoking.
