The fictional Minnesota town of Lake Wobegon is real to millions of A Prairie Home Companion fans, who tune in each week for the latest news about its strong women and good-looking men. Like Sinclair Lewis’s Gopher Prairie, it is part of literary legend. Several novels have been set among its quiet streets: Lake Wobegon Days, Wobegon Boy, Lake Wobegon Summer 1956, and now Pontoon.

In the little town of Lake Wobegon, a “wedding” is planned down to the last detail, from the cheese and pâté to the flying Elvis to the pontoon boat. Meanwhile, the surprising secret life of a recently deceased good Lutheran lady comes to light, her daughter meets a lover at the Romeo Motel, and a delegation of renegade Lutheran pastors from Denmark comes to town. That’s just the beginning of the stories and characters that drift in on Pontoon.

    " This book was sloe and not as interesting as the synopsis was made out to be. I was listening to it on my Ipod and got about 1/2 through disc one. Maybe if it was read by someone with more enthusiasm it would have been different. The reader was slow and boring. "

    " i was excited to read this cuz Garrison Kellor can be kinda interesting... but, yeah, I dont think so. It is very anti-climactic until 5 pages toward the end of the book then it is all over. The epilogue was completely unneccessary to read. yadayada. bummer city. "
