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. Download and start listening now!
