He’s big. He’s bold. He’s brash. And as the new governor of Minnesota, Jimmy (Big Boy) Valente is the most compelling figure to appear on the state—and national—political landscape in decades.

The new King of America Politics (and former UWA World Champion) tells all to bestselling author, public radio show host, and fellow Minnesotan Garrison Keillor in Me: By Jimmy (Big Boy) Valente—a brilliant, biting, and wickedly funny send-up of American politics.

This is satire at its best, delivered as only Keillor can. Meet the fascinating Big Boy and join in on the wild ride!

    " Funny. Quick read and well worth it if you like satire. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Keith | 8/20/2010

    " I don't know if Jesse Ventura ever got a hold of this one, but I'd like to let him personally know that I don't think this reflects him as much as it does the creative genious of Keillor. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marc | 7/2/2010

    " A rare gem. Takeoff on Jess Venture. Garrison is in fine form. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 J | 2/25/2009

    " The book was funny at turns, but I think I'd rather listen to Mr. Keillor on the radio. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Andrew | 4/25/2008

    " Keillor's satire about Jesse Ventura was fun, if dated. Might be more satisfying for a Minnesotan, but I enjoyed nonetheless. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebecca | 3/21/2008

    " Kept me amused one afternoon in college. I appreciated it more for having spent time in Minnesota hearing a lot about Jesse Ventura on the news. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 8/21/2007

    " It's not Garrison Keillor's best work, but it's fearless in attacking Jesse Ventura. And it's funny! "

    " This book was funny, but not THAT funny. "
