Garrison Keillor is the author of Pontoon and four other Lake Wobegon novel.

A classic you revisited with disappointment:

Moby-Dick by Herman Melville. Why did it take Melville so looooooonnnng to get to the story? I couldn't make it more than halfway through.

A book that parents should read to their kids:

Moby-Dick. Two minutes and they'll be asleep.
[CftAR note: don't swallow this line on Moby-Dick. It's amazing.]
