EVERY GUY NEEDS TO GET THIS, AND SLAP IT IN THE CAR CD PLAYER WHEN THE SPOUSAL UNIT IS PRESENT. THE MOST THOROUGH AND ENLIGHTENING DESCRIPTION OF A MAN'S DEEPEST NEEDS I'M AWARE OF.

I like books that make me laugh out loud, though they're way too few and far between. This one had me laughing throughout, and for that reason alone it is well worth the read. And no, I don't think you'd have to be a guy to enjoy this one.
Keillor's writing, besides being very funny, is very literate and clever. Many of the stories come across in much the same way his radio skits and monologues do. But - I wouldn't say that he's quite mastered the written short story genre just yet. Quite a few of the stories have endings that read like Keillor just decided that the story had gone on long enough, so let's see if we can wrap it up in the next 20 words or so. They kind of leave you hanging.
However, stylistic demerits aside, this is one very funny book!

Hey, I'm a guy. I recognize guy humor. Not the burning, expletive-shouting stuff followed by horse laughs meant to call up like noises from the peanut gallery, but The "Did I really say that? Well, then, Goethe, Mark Twain, and I must be on the same page" kind of humor that has you sinking slowly beneath the waves of the hot tub or swimming pool or baptismal font. Great stuff!

Garrison has a unique way of story telling. I like his style and have given it as gifts.

The Mid-Life Crisis of Dionysis could be the beat short story ever written, IMHO.

Great writing and great book. It arrived as scheduled and in the condition advertised.

Great product and fast service
As a follower of Garrison Keillor this was a book I couldn't resist purchasing and now having read it, will always have a pride of place on my bookshelf.
