Garrison Keillor returns to the little town we love and continues to chronicle the lives of our favorite folks.

Lake Wobegon is in a frenzy of preparations for the Fourth of July. This being Wobegon, lives collide and relationships develop in the oddest ways. Take Clint Bunson, the treasurer of the Lutheran church and the auto mechanic who starts cars on below-zero mornings. For six years, he has run the Fourth of July parade, turning what was once a line of pickup trucks into an event of dazzling spectacle.

The town is dizzy with anticipation—until they hear of Clint’s ambition to run for Congress. They know about his episodes with vodka sours, his rocky marriage, and his friendship with the 24-year-old who dresses up as the Statue of Liberty for the parade and may be buck naked beneath her robes.

In Keillor’s words, “It is Lake Wobegon as you imagined it—good loving people who drive each other crazy.”

    " I really enjoy Garrison Keillor and his stories from Lake Wobegon. The characters in NFLW are always entertaining and while not always "laugh out loud" funny, they are amusing. That's why the horribleness of this book was so shocking. I was determined to finish it or else it would have gotten tossed out after the first few chapters. The story was not entertaining or cohesive. The characters felt like total strangers. There was no humor in this book at all. The one nice thing I can say about the book is that it was short. "

    " An amusing, quick read. More of a character sketch of the town, than a real novel. "

    " I learned from this book that although I usually hate Keillor's radio show, he is an incredible writer. And god can Minnesota be funny. It's a must read if you consider yourself a Minnesotan. For anyone who's ever been to Minnesota for that matter. "

    " Meh, it's good enough for the subway. I really enjoy "A Prairie Home Companion" on the radio, but this is not anywhere near as good as the radio show. "
