Famous radio private eye Guy Noir leaps from A Prairie Home Companion to the page
On the 12th floor of the Acme Building, on a cold February day in St. Paul, Guy Noir looks down the barrel of a loaded revolver in the hands of geezer gangster Joey Roast Beef who is demanding to hear what lucrative scheme Guy is cooking up with stripper-turned-women's-studies-professor Naomi Fallopian. Everyone wants to know-Joey, Lieutenant McCafferty, reporter Gene Williker, Guy’s ex-girlfriend Sugar O'Toole, the despicable Larry B. Larry, the dreamboat Scarlett Anderson, Mr. Kress of the FDA–and Guy faces them one by one, as he and Naomi pursue a dream of earning gazillions by selling a surefire method of dramatic weight loss. In this whirlwind caper Guy faces danger, falls in love, and faces off with the capo del capo del grande primo capo Johnny Banana.

SHORT STORIES. GARRISON KEILLOR is America's favorite storyteller. For more than 30 years as the host of "A Prairie Home Companion", he has captivated millions of public radio listeners with his weekly "News from Lake Wobegon" monologues. Keillor is also the author of several books and a frequent contributor to national publications including "Time, The New Yorker", and "National Geographic", in addition to writing his own syndicated column. The radio series "Guy Noir" debuted on A Prairie Home Companion in 1995 and has been a regular part of the show ever since. A smart, witty spoof of the pulp fiction/film noir genre, it blends original comedy with riffs on current events and a lingering nostalgia for simpler times.
