The News from Lake Wobegon from A Prairie Home Companion, March 26, 2011
著者: Garrison Keillor
"It's been a quiet week in Lake Wobegon, my hometown..." Garrison Keillor first did his monologue in 1974 to an audience of 20 in a St. Paul theater. Today, more than 2.2 million people tune in each week to hear the tall tales and sweet stories about the citizens of this small Minnesota town. It's a town where "the women are strong, the men are good-looking, and all of the children are above average." Keillor's monologues capture the nuances of country life and of growing up American with eloquence and subtle humor.
