We are still married: stories & letters, Garrison Keillor. we are still married. The shock, for a radio fan leafing through this collection, is to discover, perhaps not for the first or fifth time, that his hero is even more gifted as writer than as entertainer.

down in the basement. Monday morning, I walked my wife to her job near Union Square, kissed her goodbye, and headed up Park Avenue toward my office. It was a bright cold day. d up at 24th and saw, in stone, a man’s head in the mouth of a lion. At 27th, I ducked into the New York Life building and down a subway passage marked UP AND DOWN TOWN as a herd of passengers came pouring through two revolving doors revolving so steadily that the doors looked like a machine that stamps out office workers-whump whump whump.

We Are Still Married book. I'm a big Garrison Keillor fan. I could almost hear him reading these essays aloud. Most of the humor is pretty timeless, but the odd joke is that he is NOT, in fact, still married to the woman he was with at the time this was published. Dec 01, 2008 Kati rated it it was ok.

Mr. Keillor's collection is broken down into five sections. The first is entitled "Pieces" and are not his best work. The stories are quite surreal with a few gems of text. In the second section, "The Lake", the author finds his stride with very funny, insightful vignettes of Lake Wobegon residents. The third, "Letters", are wonderful nonfiction columns about a wide variety of subjects. Mr. Keillor's talents shine in this forum. He can take the most mundane situation and cull funny, heartwarming messages. The forth section, "Poems", was okay, but this has more to do with my indifference to most poetry. However, his gets extra points in my book for starting off with a scatological composition. The final collection, "Stories", is a mixed bag. Some of the works were wonderful; others were blah. However, Mr. Keillor is such a talented writer that even his more boring pieces had some great bon mots. The author's work are not the kind of material the reader should rush through. I could practically hear his lackadaiscal voice while reading. It made for a much more pleasurable experience.

I am excited to give this book as an anniversary present to my wife, it represents 3rd year for leather or could be first for paper, along with the very appealing humor and wit of Mr. Keillor. I was lucky to purchase it from Elyn's Library as she was amazing in staying in contact, getting it to me very quickly, and the packaging was so amazing I did not have to even wrap it. It was like going to small neighborhood book store with all the personal attention you could ever want. I highly recommend the book and Elyn's library.

the funniest book by Keillor.
  • Hellmaster
This book does not, in my opinion, live up to the standard that I have come to expect from Mr. Keillor. For the first time, I will not finish the book, since I find too much of it to be (putting it mildly) boring. There are many excellent Keillor books, I just did not find this to be one of them. Spoken as a fan of Garrison.

Love Garrison Keillor
Not really fair to review this now - I'm a bit hazy on it. Because it's an anthology of humorous/whimsical articles and a few daydream stories, I wisely only read it in small doses over a while - the pieces suffer if you read too many in a row, and weren't written for this. Still it means I'm not as up on exactly why it got an A-.
 
Several pieces are definitely not worthy of an A, though few would drop below a B. I recall really relishing 'Who do you think you are?', a reflection on dealing with the assumption of mediocrity. 'The Current Crisis in Remorse' was a clever satire on the much (legitimately) pilloried denial of guilt in the courts. How to write a letter was on the money, and particularly the first of 'Three Marriages' was quite touching and felt authentic.
 
He's in the same category as P.J. O'Rourke, but less biting, and his humour is not so much the clever one-liner as a slow characterisation. He rides on the edge of sentimentality but somehow rarely crosses it, managing warmth and definitive whimsicality.
