about

This boxed set of the first four Vinyl Cafe story collections is a treasure for devoted fans of Stuart McLean—Canada’s most beloved storyteller—and newcomers to the world of Dave and Morley, their children Stephanie and Sam, and their friends and pets, alike.

Warm, witty, and moving, these stories follow Dave and Morley as they stumble through the obstacle course of challenges that parenting throws up, and glance back to the early days of their marriage and into Dave’s childhood in Big Narrows, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia.

They reach out into the lives of friends and neighbours: impossibly perfect Mary Turlington; unflappable Kenny Wong, proprietor of Wong’s Scottish Meat Pies; and kind, patient Jim Scoffield, who remains a devoted friend despite so often witnessing Dave at his most hapless—checking into an elegant downtown hotel with a large uncooked turkey under one arm, to take only one example from many.

And in them we also meet Galway the cat, who stows away in the car trunk for family vacations and whom Dave once toilet trained, and Arthur the dog, who loves soft ice cream and steals potatoes. It was for him that Stuart McLean named the annual Arthur Awards, which called on listeners to The Vinyl Cafe to honour unsung heroes for the quiet ways that ordinary people help and support each other every day. These stories do much the same thing—they vividly narrate the extraordinary moments of tenderness and generosity, as well as the hilarious misadventures, of ordinary lives.

STUART McLEAN was the writer and host of the popular CBC Radio show The Vinyl Cafe. He is the author of the bestselling books Vinyl Cafe Diaries, which won the short fiction award from the Canadian Authors Association; The Morningside World of Stuart McLean, which was a finalist for the City of Toronto Book Awards; Welcome Home: Travel...
