about

Welcome back to the Vinyl Cafe and to the wonderful, quirky world of its proprietor and his family and friends. Home from the Vinyl Cafe takes us into a year in the life of Dave, Morley, Stephanie and Sam as they bump and stumble from one Christmas fiasco to the next. In between, we learn of Dave and Morley's first meeting, on ice, and Stephanie's own early adventures in love. We hear of Dave and Morley's sometimes misguided, but always heartfelt, efforts at parenting. Whether it's sending the kids to camp, putting up the Christmas lights or losing control at the grocery store, in the hands of master storyteller Stuart McLean, everyday events are seen for all their challenges and hilarious possibilities.

Warm, witty and moving, these are stories that will walk right into your life and make themselves at home.

Editorial Reviews

“McLean keeps comedy writing alive in Canada.” - Winnipeg Free Press“The man can tell a story…. He has a 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“Stuart McLean is one of Canada’s most beloved storytellers.” - The Ottawa Citizen“The same blend of charm and humour as the No. 1 Ladies Detective Series’.” - The Times (London)“Rip-roaringly funny…. A cozy, meandering, often laugh-out-loud treat.” - Kirkus Reviews (New York)“It’s rare to find a book that would be the perfect gift for a good friend or a total stranger, but Home from the Vinyl Cafe is that rare find because it’s hard to think of anyone who wouldn’t enjoy and treasure this collection of stories.” - Chronicle-Journal (Thunder Bay)“McLean’s wry depiction of the hapless Dave and his family is apt, hilarious and never saccharin. We defy you to read the chapter on their unintentional kitchen renovation [in the Vinyl Café Unplugged] without hooting with laughter.” - Chatelaine
