Margie Krebsbsch's husband, Carl, has been sleeping across the hall and she has no idea why. Hoping to reawaken his interest in romance, Margie plans a trip to Rome with the expressed purpose of tending to the neglected grave of Gussy Norlander, a Lake Wobegon boy who died in the liberation of the city in 1944. But what begins as a trip for two becomes a modern-day Canterbury Tales as more and more Wobegonians decide to go along.

I love Garrison Keillor’s storytelling voice on the CDs from his radio program (a great companion on road trips) and I could hear his voice in my head throughout this book. The story itself is lightweight and entertaining, including a nod to metafiction by inserting himself as a character, and I was charmed throughout. I particularly admire how Keillor, in the middle of a humorous situation, deftly switches to a profound observation of human idiosyncrasies. A pleasure to read.
