This work offers more hilarious tales set in and around the Vinyl Cafe, from master-storyteller Stuart McLean. Dave and Morley would tell you that life is what you make it. Unfortunately for them, that means a compilation tape of mistakes, miscues, misunderstandings, and muddle. That's not to say there's anything particularly unusual about them. Like the rest of us, they're just doing their best to respond to the challenges of modern life. After all, who hasn't started a small DIY job that, and only hours later found half their house demolished. Who hasn't worried about their son becoming addicted to knitting. Who hasn't tried to toilet-train the cat? Lost an elderly relative on a day out? Or caused mayhem at a school concert? Luckily for Dave and Morley the chaotic melody of life is underscored by the harmonious sounds of family, friends, and neighbours.
Stuart McLean hosts The Vinyl Cafe twice weekly on CBC Radio, reaching 700,000 listeners. His stories have all been bestsellers in Canada, and he has twice won the Stephen Leacock Memorial Medal for Humour - for Home from the Vinyl Cafe and Vinyl Cafe Unplugged. Home From the Vinyl Cafe is also published by Granta.
