Memoir by Garrison Keillor
While there is much in here that I might grumble or mutter about - but there is a lot that is very, very good. It certainly is a love song to the University of Minnesota, about which he sings many praises. As someone who went to - and works at - the University, I can appreciate that.
And the glimpses of his life growing up in Minnesota, in a time a decade or so before my own is charming. He's more than scathing about "Republicans," though he separates Repbublicans-that-were from Repbublicans-that-are. In the end he raises a standard that is something more than partisan - a call to live and support a civil society that opens the world of opportunity to all.
