If you could combine the fantasia of H.P. Lovecraft with Garrison Keillor's winsome folksiness, it would probably sound like Brad Strickland's tellingly titled An Arkham Home Companion. In a droll performance of his own work, Strickland delivers a clever pastiche of Keillor's down-home delivery while chronicling the tale of a boy from the town of Arkham who has turned into a monster, and the lives affected by his transformation. It's an odd and fascinating story that is enriched by Strickland, who manages to interject both a buoyant humor and a moving, poignant sense of humanity.
