The Vinyl Cafe Celebrates
From Canada's much-missed, nationally bestselling storyteller, a must-have collection featuring ten never-before-published stories and ten classic favourites, perfect for old fans and Vinyl Cafe newcomers alike.
From the unforgettable Christmas classic "Dave Cooks the Turkey" to the tender tribute to ice-cream-loving, potato-sitting Arthur the dog in "Morte d'Arthur"; from the joys and challenges of marriage in "The Canoe Trip" to the celebration of childhood adventure in "The Waterslide."
From the beginning of life (the hilarious "Labour Pains") to the end (the touching "Love Never Ends") and all the moments--big and small--in between, these stories remind us that there are occasions to celebrate every day.
For more than two decades, Stuart McLean entered the hearts and homes of Canadians via The Vinyl Cafe radio show, his many tours across the country, and multiple nationally bestselling books. His charming, humane, and side-splitting stories brought the trials and triumphs of Dave, Morley, Sam, and Stephanie to life, and made their memorable circle of friends, family, and neighbours as real as our own.
This collection is both timely and timeless, a rich celebration of Stuart McLean's inimitable voice, and of the importance of love, community, kindness, and the healing power of laughter.
