A comic anatomy of what is small and ordinary and therefore potentially profound and universal in American life Keillor's strength as a writer is to make the ordinary extraordinary. Chicago Tribune
Keillor's laughs come dear, not cheap, emerging from shared virtue and good character, from reassuring us of our neighborliness and strength .His true subject is how daily life is shot with grace. Keillor writes a prose that can be turned to laughter, to tears to compassion or satire, to a hundred effects. He is a brilliant parodist. San Francisco Chronicle.
