Harvard Book Store is pleased to welcome A Prairie Home Companion host GARRISON KEILLOR for a discussion and reading of his poetry collection, O, What a Luxury: Verses Lyrical, Vulgar, Pathetic & Profound.
O What a Luxury: Verses Lyrical, Vulgar, Pathetic & Profound is the first poetry collection written by Garrison Keillor. Although he has edited several anthologies of his favorite poems, this volume forges a new path for him, as a poet of light verse. He writes—with his characteristic combination of humor and insight—on love, modernity, nostalgia, politics, religion, and other facets of daily life. Keillor’s verses are charming and playful, locating sublime song within the humdrum of being human.
Garrison Keillor is the bestselling author of Lake Wobegon Days, Happy To Be Here, Leaving Home, We Are Still Married, Radio Romance, The Book of Guys and Wobegon Boy. He is the host of A Prairie Home Companion on American public radio and a contributor to Time magazine.
