Praise

Praise for HOW TO TALK MINNESOTAN (original edition):

“An intelligent and hilarious meditation on the Minnesotan character.”—Kirkus Reviews

“There are some laugh out-loud passages in Mohr’s 221-page book.”—St. Paul Pioneer Press Dispatch

“Mohr is a very funny man, and How to Talk Minnesotan is a very funny book.”—Minnesota Monthly

“A writer with a very offbeat sense of humor.”—Courier-Post

“Just lie back and enjoy…as the ‘lessons’ become more sophisticated, the ‘how we talk’ motif recedes and becomes merely the vehicle to tell readers how we live. And that’s good stuff…I’ll take my language lessons from a humorist rather than a linguist any day.”—The Minneapolis Star-Tribune

“Planning a trip to the Big Soybean? Study this handy guide by a former scriptwriter for Prairie Home Companion beforehand so you won’t have people pointing or staring every time you open your mouth.”—Washington Post Book World

“Ranging in flavor from satiric pungency to lunatic lusciousness, this is glorious, uproarious humor. Or as they say in Minnesota, ‘a heckuva deal, you bet.’”—Booklist
