Faith stories from the collection More news from Lake Wobegon by Garrison Keillor ( Recording )
1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 83 libraries worldwide
"These days I live in big foreign cities--New York and Copenhagen--but I think about America everyday and imagine a town, an avenue of old frame houses, a boulevard of tall trees, a June night, lawn sprinklers swishing across the grass and popping the flower bushes by the porch. A dog on the porch. Lights behind the curtains. Rock 'n' roll in an upstairs bedroom. Charcoal smoke in the air, a whiff of burgers. A gang of kids skidding around on gravel, giggling. A screen door slaps and a dad marcehs out to the garage. Yard after yard, block after block, every sight and sound and smell utterly familiar. This is the American neighborhood of childhood comfort and fantasy, of teenage ambition, and of the tenderness and misery and splendor and comedy of marriage. Movies and novels of brutality and greed may sell a zillion copies, but they're irrelevant to the life of this avenue, which is based on faith, hope, love, and humor. -- Garrison Keillor"--container.
