Garrison Keillor, host of the popular NPR program “A Prairie Home Companion” returns to McNally Jackson to sign his latest novel, Guy Noir and the Straight Skinny, as well as favorites from his backlist of books. The book is his first featuring detective Noir, who has before made appearances on Keillor’s show in his “Guy Noir: Private Eye” segments. Not as suave as Sam Spade, not as skilled as Philip Marlowe, Noir is a private eye who might be better at getting into trouble than he is getting out of it.
