Anita Brookner is an unflinching novelist who writes beautifully and fearlessly about subjects that other writers leave well alone. Her control of her material is absolute and the glassy surfaces of her heroine's interpretations of the world are rendered with consummate skill and, at times, startling humour.

At twenty-six, Emma Roberts comes to the painful realization that if she is ever to become truly independent, she must leave her comfortable London flat and venture into the wider world. This entails not only breaking free from a claustrophobic relationship with her mother, but also shedding her inherited tendency toward melancholy. Once settled in a small Paris hotel, Emma befriends Fran?oise Desnoyers, a vibrant young woman who offers Emma a glimpse into a turbulent life so different from her own.

I love reading this book, and it's one of the very few books I keep and re-read because it's so dang enjoyable. I am from the Midwest and relate 100% to the things Keillor writes about. Characters in this book are people I grew up with - the fat aunt who "did't want to say anything" to make anyone mad but would fume in obvious silence - the old man with the Pioneer Seed Corn cap. The '66 Chevy that has just a few thousand mile on her. Sweet corn - garden grown tomatoes - butchering your own chicken - Lutheran pastors - the taverns, the weather, the kids in town. I read this book aloud (sometimes edited on the fly by me) to my kids when we went camping. One daughter wants the book for her own now and I must order the kindle edition for myself. I really love this book. I don't think it's for everyone but it is definitely for me because I know these people.

This is very funny. The baritone voice echoes in my.mind... I always wondered, listening to A Prairie Home Companion, does he really make this stuff up as he goes? What an incredibly agile mind. Droll, ironic, insightful in the humor of these small town ... people. Germans and Norwegians .... not Irish, Germans and Italians as in my own Indiana home. Much larger than lake woebegon. A part of America that still exists? It saddens me to think that within my lifetime, Sunday stopped being a day where stores remained closed. Our wants became needs and one bread winner wasn't enough. Now, the NEW smirks up the entire internet in ... an hour ... each hour ... a new ebb and flow that sucks the inter-verse down like hotdish tunoodle casserole ... the chattering

Garrison Keillor is a master short story writer...unfortunately, publishers keep trying to turn him into a novelist. This is his BEST collection of stories. Wise, warm, and wonderful. A worthy successor to the string of small-town American writers.
