From Canada’s much-missed, nationally bestselling storyteller, a must-have collection featuring ten never-before-published stories and ten classic favourites, perfect for old fans and Vinyl Cafe newcomers alike.


From the unforgettable Christmas classic “Dave Cooks the Turkey” to the tender tribute to ice-cream-loving, potato-sitting Arthur the dog in “Morte d’Arthur”; from the joys and challenges of marriage in “The Canoe Trip” to the celebration of childhood adventure in “The Waterslide.” 



From the beginning of life (the hilarious “Labour Pains”) to the end (the touching “Love Never Ends”) and all the moments—big and small—in between, these stories remind us that there are occasions to celebrate every day.

For more than two decades, Stuart McLean entered the hearts and homes of Canadians via The Vinyl Cafe radio show, his many tours across the country, and multiple nationally bestselling books. His charming, humane, and side-splitting stories brought the trials and triumphs of Dave, Morley, Sam, and Stephanie to life, and made their memorable circle of friends, family, and neighbours as real as our own.

This collection is both timely and timeless, a rich celebration of Stuart McLean’s inimitable voice, and of the importance of love, community, kindness, and the healing power of laughter.

PERENNIAL BESTSELLER: With over a million copies sold, Stuart McLean’s books claimed space on bestseller lists many times over the years, including the posthumous Christmas at the Vinyl Cafe.

McLEAN’s APPEAL HAS NOT DIMMED: As the response to CBC Radio’s re-airing of episodes of The Vinyl Cafe through the summer of 2020 shows, he is as beloved as ever.

A DREAM GIFT: This celebratory collection makes a perfect present for many occasions; for the holiday season, as well as for birthdays and anniversaries and for anyone embarking on a new phase of life—college, starting a business, having a baby.

HILARIOUS AND HEART-WARMING: Stuart McLean—a three-time winner of the Stephen Leacock Memorial Medal for Humour—achieved a mastery of humorous storytelling matched only by the warmth and humanity of his depiction of ordinary people muddling through with a little help from their family, their friends, their neighbours.

NECESSARY: The Vinyl Cafe’s message of tolerance and community, love and patience is needed now more than ever.

STUART McLEAN was the writer and host of the popular CBC Radio show The Vinyl Cafe. He is the author of numerous bestselling books, including 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: Travels in Smalltown Canada, which won the CAA’s award for nonfiction; and Home from the Vinyl Cafe, Vinyl Cafe Unplugged, and Secrets from the Vinyl Cafe, all three of which won the Stephen Leacock Memorial Medal for Humour. He received the Canadian Booksellers Association Lifetime Achievement Award in 2014. He passed away on February 15, 2017.
