PontoonGarrison Keiller

Told in his gentle, rolling monologue, Pontoon is all one can hope for in a Lake Woebegon story. Looney characters gently drift through, some angst on a small-scale Lutheran level, gentle teasing of Californians and many familiar names and faces. Interestingly, I think this is the first Keiller book where a Lake Woebegon resident leaves and this is found to be a positive thing. Sweet, funny and oddly out there.
