John Tollefson, a son of Lake Wobegon, has moved East to manage a radio station at a college for academically challenged children of financially gifted parents in upstate New York. Having achieved this pleasant perch, John has a brilliant idea for a restaurant specializing in fresh sweet corn. And he falls in love with an historian named Alida Freeman, hard at work on a book about a nineteenth-century Norwegian naturopath, an acquaintance of Lincoln, Thoreau, Whitman, and Susan B. Anthony.

Bestselling author and humorist Garrison Keillor returns to one of America's most beloved mythical towns, beset by a contagion of alarming candor. A mysterious virus has infiltrated the good people of Lake Wobegon, transmitted via unpasteurized cheese made by a Norwegian bachelor farmer, the effect of which is episodic loss of social inhibition. Mayor Alice, Father Wilmer, Pastor Liz, the Bunsens and Krebsbachs, formerly taciturn elders, burst into political rants, inappropriate confessions, and rhapsodic proclamations, while their teenagers watch in amazement. Meanwhile, a wealthy outsider is buying up farmland for a Keep America Truckin’ motorway and amusement park, estimated to draw 2.2 million visitors a year. Clint Bunsen and Elena the hometown epidemiologist to the rescue, with a Fourth of July Living Flag and sweet corn feast for a finale. In his newest Lake Wobegon novel, Garrison Keillor takes us back to the small prairie town where for so long American readers and listeners have found laughter as well as the wry airing of our foibles and most familiar desires and fears—a town where, as we know, "all the women are strong, all the men are good-looking, and all the children are above average."

In this delightful memoir, Jimmy R. Lewis does for the Ozarks what Garrison Keillor does for Lake Wobegon. Lewis has compiled an appealing and enduring love letter to Midwestern small town life of yesterday. BlueInk Starred Review In his memoir of growing up in rural southwest Missouri, Jimmy R. Lewis uses local newspaper archives and childhood memories to bring a bygone era back to life. Missouri Historical Review Lewis is a talented storyteller. Reading these accounts is like being at a family reunion, hearing lively tales—preferably told outdoors in late summer, with the...jar flies, or cicadas, buzzing in the trees... Clarion Review - Five Stars (out of five) Lewis paints, in alternating broad and fine strokes, a picture of a small segment of the rural United States through difficult and prosperous eras. He has an eye for satisfying detail, and he thoroughly catalogs a colorful cast of characters... Kirkus Reviews Wheaton and Rocky Comfort, Missouri, may have looked like two sleepy towns in the mid-twentieth century, but they were home to an aging former cowboy who bested Old West legend Tom Horn in a knife fight, a faith-healing preacher who sought converts as a four-foot bullsnake slithered around his shoulders, and an air force fighter pilot who narrowly averted firing a missile that could have started World War III. Author Jimmy R. Lewis presents these and many other stories that offer insight into a piece of rural America’s history.
