Clint Bunsen is one of the old reliables in Lake Wobegon. For six years he has run the Fourth of July parade, turning what was once a bunch of pickup trucks and girls pushing baby carriages with cats in them into an event of dazzling spectacle. The town is dizzy with anticipation— but Clint himself is having second thoughts about his life.
Garrison Keillor returns to the little town we love and continues to chronicle the lives of our favorite folks.
Lake Wobegon is in a frenzy of preparations for the Fourth of July. This being Wobegon, lives collide and relationships develop in the oddest ways. Take Clint Bunson, the treasurer of the Lutheran church and the auto mechanic who starts cars on below-zero mornings. For six years, he has run the Fourth of July parade, turning what was once a line of pickup trucks into an event of dazzling spectacle.
The town is dizzy with anticipation—until they hear of Clint’s ambition to run for Congress. They know about his episodes with vodka sours, his rocky marriage, and his friendship with the 24-year-old who dresses up as the Statue of Liberty for the parade and may be buck naked beneath her robes.
In Keillor’s words, “It is Lake Wobegon as you imagined it—good loving people who drive each other crazy.”

Liberty- I enjoyed every chapter..
I am a long time fan of Garrison Keillor and I purchased this audio book for reading on the beach while on vacation. Its a love story,murder mystery and a human nature story. All of the favorite Lake Wobegon are mentioned in this audio book. When I was finished this book I could not wait to start another.
