Love Me
Garrison Keillor, Faber, £7.99
Larry Wyler, not-quite-hero of Love Me, writes humourless novels full of unspeakable dialogue. That’s not a problem Keillor has to worry about. But while this skit on the self-regarding author’s memoir can be wonderfully silly, it’s a bit close to the real thing. Keillor may be moaning about the New Yorker being taken over by the Mafia, but he’s still moaning about the New Yorker. Read his other stuff first.
