about

A brand new collection of Vinyl Cafe stories, from the inimitable Stuart McLean, featuring a worldlier and wiser Dave and Morley.


Dave and Morley are growing older, Steph and Sam are growing up. Moving out and moving on.

     Everyone's growing wiser and worldlier--well, almost everyone.
     Yes, Dave still has trouble with the automatic car wash, defibrillators, and hot yoga, but he's come to appreciate Mary Turlington, and that's saying quite a bit.
     In this brand new collection of Vinyl Cafe stories, the more things change, the more things stay the same . . .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great book Even if only one story made me laugh until I cried, this book will still get 5 stars. Full of wisdom, laughter, and hints of Nova Scotia, this is another lovely book from the wonderful Stuart McLean.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Great Man and a Great Story Teller Like many I grew up listening to the CBC and remember Stuart's occasional appearances on Morning Side, and later when he had his own show. Not only have I read all of his books my wife listens to all his CD's. This collection reveals that the author is more than a humourist. In fact this book elicits my description Stuart is the Comedian who while make you cry. This may be a bit biased since I was a close friend to the author, but do not take my word for it read it yourself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Growing Old with Dave and Morely I fell in love with Stuart McLean ever since I discovered him on the CBC many years ago. His stories are always heart warming, hysterical, insightful and brilliant. Stuart McLean was a national treasure and I will miss his company. This is another great edition to the Dave and Morely saga. Love!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vinyl Cafe Continues I've been a huge fan of the Vinyl Cafe for a few years now, and this particular book continued to meet my happy expectations. Witty, short, Canadian, and perfect to sit down with for a few minutes each evening... or even share when you're teaching Canadian Lit in high school. If you're already familiar with Vinyl Cafe, the latest quirks of Dave and Morley won't disappoint. #plumreview

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Reading For A Winter Snowstorm Stuart McLean is a master storyteller - his characters and stories ring so true are so relatable that you forget these are fiction and believe them as you would believe a friend sitting with you for coffee, filling you in on their past week. So glad that this author has kept this series running for so long!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I loved this I don't normally like collections of short stories, but I love Stuart McLean. His stories are universal, but at the same time quintessentially Canadian. Often times they make me laugh out loud, and sometimes they make me cry. They always make me want more.

He is so in tune with his characters.” —Winnipeg Free Press “Stuart McLean is one of Canada's most beloved storytellers.” —Ottawa Citizen
