Listening to the audio book of Christmas Blizzard (by Garrison Keillor) was like listening to one of GK’s rambling Lake Wobegon stories on steroids. He introduces James Sparrow (a thoroughly unlikely and unlikable character) in the first several chapters and then send the man on a trip to his hometown in North Dakota. While there, James has visits from three “ghosts” of his past and hence a complete and utter reversal of character. Sound a bit familiar? I was hoping for a good, funny, Christmas story to read and recommend to others this season, but this didn’t fill the bill.
