Lake Wobegon Days

by Garrison Keillor

One of a series of titles first published by Faber between 1930 and 1990, and in a style and format planned with a view to the appearance of the volumes on the bookshelf. Keillor's tales present a wryly affectionate and humorous chronicle of an imaginary town in the American Midwest.

Lake Wobegon Summer 1956

by Garrison Keillor

The Doo Dads are singing "My Girl" on the radio and fourteen-year-old Gary is studying pictures of naked women, aware that Grandpa is looking down from heaven wondering how the boy turned out so badly. He has never so much as kissed a girl, except his rebellious cousin Kate, a sophisticate of seventeen who knows about The New Yorker and also how to swear and exhale smoke rings. But this is a summer of change for Gary: he fights back against his bullying born-again sister and his tyrannical teacher, and most significantly, he receives an Underwood typewriter-a typewriter that will help Gary believe he can become a writer. With his trademark gift for treading "a line delicate as a cobweb between satire and sentiment" (The Cleveland Plain Dealer), Keillor's touching and funny novel brilliantly captures a newly minted America and delivers an unforgettable comedy about the universal aspects of adolescence-from first loves to fear and fascination with bodily functions. .

Lakeland Terrier

by Patricia Peters

This Comprehensive Owner's Guide to the Lakeland Terrier serves as a complete introduction to this unique British terrier breed known for its prowess at seeking both quarry and comedy. The Lakey, as the breed is affectionately known, is a free-thinking little devil, smaller than most of the other long-legged terriers and more easygoing. The Lakeland Terrier, named for the Lake District in Britain, is unspoiled compared to many of his more popular earthdog brethren, and yet he is equally as bold, daring, and fearless as the larger Airedale, Irish, and Welsh Terriers.Written by Patricia Peters, well-known dog illustrator and Lakeland Terrier breeder of the famed Kilfel Kennels, this "Special Limited Edition" offers an opening chapter on the history of the breed, from its beginnings in the Lake District to its coming to the United States in the 1920s. The chapters on characteristics and the breed standard encapsulate all of the virtues and potential drawbacks of this cocky, little terrier breed, offering sound advice about which owners are best suited to handle the cunning "con artist" and clown of the Terrier Group.Potential owners will welcome the chapter on finding a breeder and selecting a health, sound puppy. Chapters on puppy-proofing the home and yard, purchasing the right supplies for the puppy as well as house-training, feeding, and grooming are illustrated with handsome adults and puppies bursting with intelligence and mischief! In all, there are over 135 photographs in this compact, useful, and entertaining volume. The author's advice on obedience training the Lakeland Terrier, a bright and industrious breed that can pose a challenge to novice owners, will help readers better mold and train their dogs into the well-behaved canine citizens. The extensive and lavishly illustrated chapter on healthcare provides up-to-date detailed information on selecting a qualified veterinarian, vaccinations, parasites, infectious diseases, and more. A chapter on senior dog care gives readers insight into what's required to care for these long-lived terriers once they reach their golden years. A chapter on competing with the Lakeland Terrier in dog shows and various trials sponsored by the American Kennel Club gives owners a glimpse into the many possibilities of participating with their Lakeys in the dog sport. Sidebars throughout the text offer helpful hints, covering topics as diverse as specialty shows, dental care, toxic plants, first aid, crate training, and parasite control.

The Lakenham Folly

by Laura Daniels

The old Folly has not been used since those twenty young men, full of ideals for the century that was still in its spring, marched out to war in 1914. When the last survivor of the Lakenham Set, General Reginald Maitland, enters with his granddaughter Gemma on his hundredth birthday, it is here, surrounded by memories of the past, that he entrusts to her one final, vital mission: to find Ted Parsons. Ted Parsons' life is the key to a fortune left by the Lakenham Set, intended to commemorate the century's achievements and their own ideals, but that quaint concept is now clouded by private ambitions among the narrowing number of contenders for the money. Parsons disappeared shortly after the Second World War, so is he dead or alive? Gemma's quest takes her to Florence, where she falls headlong into a maze where nothing and no one is as it seems. As she battles her way through a web in which her very survival is at stake if she makes a wrong decision, Gemma is forced to ask whether the deaths that follow in the wake of her investigation are accidental, natural - or something far more sinister...
