what I thought about "liberty"

Grant bought this book for me for Christmas from the dollar store. It was a bargain. I had forgotten what a funny writer Garrison Keillor is. He is very adept at stringing together sentences and painting a vivid picture of the characters who live in Lake Wobegon, who are all believable and familiar. This is a very funny book, especially for people who live in small towns and have witnessed the extensive planning that goes into putting on town celebrations. I even laughed until I got some little tears in my eyes, so I recommend it. Although either Keillor or his protagonist or both are kind of into pubic hair, like, every description of a sexual liaison included a reference to it, until I was like, "We get it, Garrison. You like the natural look on a woman."

I don't want to think about Garrison Keillor thinking about pubic hair.

This has nothing to do with anything, but may I submit "Angie" by the Rolling Stones for your songs to never be heard again list? Thanks.

I love Garrison Keillor's fiction, though I think I may have only read one of his novels and I can't even remember the title. Don't remember the sex parts, or maybe I've blocked them.

The book I read was Pontoon, and I didn't read it I listened to it on CD. Read by Keillor. It was wonderful.
