For decades now, he's been at it — on the air, in print, and lately on the big screen. Some call him the new Mark Twain. He's out with a new book called "Pontoon".

This hour On Point: a conversation with A Prairie Home Companion's Garrison Keillor.Guest:

Garrison Keillor, host of Minnesota Public Radio's A Prairie Home Companion and author of the new book, "Pontoon: A Novel of Lake Wobegon."

This program aired on September 10, 2007.
