If you ask them, Dave and Morley's friends will tell you that no matter how long you’ve known people, they can still surprise you.

After all, no one expects to see a grown man dive into the trunk of his car to chase a rat. And despite what they may claim, few people are actually prepared to have their backyard, never mind their 12-year-old son, shoot to stardom on YouTube's most watched videos. And yes, the sight of a 87-year-old bungeejumping off a cruise ship is... unusual. But well-wishers at the Vinyl Cafe will advise you to be philosophical about such things.

No matter who sends a volley of nails through your truck window, which mannequin is disrobed, or how green your skin turns when your mom leaves town, life marches on. In Extreme Vinyl Cafe bestselling author Stuart McLean regales us with the wild impulses and extreme behaviours of Canada's favourite characters at the Vinyl Cafe.


STUART McLEAN writes and hosts the popular CBC Radio show The Vinyl Cafe. Over one million people around the world tune in to the show every week. He is the author of many bestselling and award-winning books, including eight collections of Vinyl Cafe stories.

Editorial Reviews

“The man can tell a story ... He has the remarkable ability to polish the everyday and give it a gleam ... It is a generous and remarkable thing, best shared with a wink and a nod and a good cup of tea.” - The Globe and Mail“Pure comic genius.” - The Chronicle-Herald (Halifax)“Stuart McLean is a natural storyteller with an ear cocked for real talk and a perfect sense of comic timing ... a sly, entertaining humorist and an expert on the inexhaustible subject of human foibles." - Billy Collins, former U.S. Poet Laureate“Rip-roaringly funny ... A cozy, meandering, often laugh-out-loud treat.” - Kirkus Reviews (New York)“Stuart McLean is one of Canada’s most beloved storytellers.” - Ottawa CitizenThe same blend of charm and humour as the No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Series” - The Times (London)“McLean’s talent is to take these basic, universal situations and spin them out into humorous and compelling dramas ... The stories are so skillfully paced and full of details. And they are engrossing because they contain heart.” - The Telegram (St. John’s)“Stuart McLean is a storyteller par excellence ... These are characters and situations that many readers will want to visit over and over.” - Quill & Quire
