It’s 1962, and college freshman Walter Bremen leaves the comfy but stifling town of Prairie Centre, Minnesota, whose claims for importance are the fancy spelling of its name, that it is in Lake Wobegon Country and that the July Fourth Parade Queen rides on the back of an un-dented, un-rusted Ford flatbed truck. He heads to the University of Minnesota ("Bobby" Dylan territory then). The population of Prairie Centre is 4,000. The student population of the University of Minnesota is 40,000. By the end of the novel, Walter lives in a snowy and crumbling Mississippi River levee town, population 40. What happened along the way? The University? His rooming house (The Pink Palace)? his Russian professor who is arrested? Chez Roy's (the restaurant where he worked)? Linda, the campus princess whom he loves? And Veronica, the crabby waitress with whom me must work in the evening? He will learn that the further and faster you run from home, the sooner you get there.
