For ten years, listeners of The Vinyl Cafe have shared their personal stories with Stuart McLean on The Vinyl Cafe Story Exchange. To celebrate the tenth anniversary of the segment, Stuart and his long-time radio producer, Jess Milton, have collected their favourites. The result is a wise, wonderful anthology of stories about rituals and romance, road trips and guitar licks, Saturday-night hockey games and Sunday morning pancakes. A story about an exploding outhouse sits right beside one about a lost love because that's just what happens in life. Sad things are all tangled up with funny things and sweet things, too.

The voices in these stories are private and personal. Reading this collection is like joining a dinner party hosted by Stuart himself.

“McLean, as usual, rewards his faithful followers bounteously… A feel-good book, one that fans of the jocular writer will want to share with friends.” - London Free Press“The tales are often funny, sometimes wistful – always warm and entertaining.” - The Montreal Gazette“Clearly written, infused with homespun aphorisms and unabashedly cheerful.” - Maclean’s“Full of warmth and charm and dignity and real emotion…very beautiful indeed.” - Halifax Chronicle Herald“Finding the comic seam of universal moments is precisely what McLean does well.” - The Globe and Mail“McLean has darn near perfect pitch…He is so in tune with his characters.” - Winnipeg Free Press“McLean’s style is characterized by a plainspoken clarity, essential to both his humour and his emotional payoffs that skirt, without indulging in, the sentimental.” - Quill and Quire“Stuart McLean is one of Canada’s most beloved storytellers.” - Ottawa Citizen“McLean’s wry depiction of the hapless Dave and his family is apt, hilarious and never saccharin.” - Chatelaine“The stories are gentle in tone, rich in the details of contemporary life and highly readable.” – The Toronto Star - The Toronto Star
