Garrison Keillor's upcoming book Love Me looks like fun reading. I got a kick out of this short story excerpt that I found on The Atlantic web site.
There are some very funny parts, including numerous entries from Mr. Blue's Minneapolis Star Journal advice column that had me rolling with laughter.
Here's a little snippet / intro. (read the whole thing for the best laughs!):
The Star Journal printed a quarter-page ad for Ask Mr. Blue ("Lonely? Confused? Angry? Tell your story to Mr. Blue. Offering commonsense answers to life's persistent questions, twice weekly in the Star Journal "), and fifty e-mails arrived instantly, immediately. Lonely was lonely, and Angry was disappointed in love, and Disappointed had a wonderful husband who was crippled by jealousy, and Brokenhearted was missing her boyfriend who was happily dating other people.
Garrison Keillor's new book, with the same title Love Me, is scheduled to be published by Viking Penguin in September.
