Happy to Be Here is a collection of short stories by Garrison Keillor, first published in hardcover by Viking in 1981. It is Keillor's first attempt at publishing a full-length book. Many of the stories first appeared in magazines Keillor wrote for between 1969 and 1981.

In these reflections on our lives and times, Keillor invites readers to join "The Shy Rights Movement", to drop in at "The People's Shopper", and to hear the truth behind the Cinderella legend as explained in the consciousness-raised lingo of "My Stepmother Myself".

External Reviews

"A great start to Keillor’s long bibliography, three dozen short stories in several different styles and genres. It all seems so effortless but of course it’s not, so the enjoyment just increases as each new take on life (mostly Midwestern) gets down to the basics of growing up, Washington politics, baseball or old-time radio. Good stuff." - Goodreads Review.
