Christmas at the Vinyl Cafe

Book

2017
"A final Christmas gift from Canada's beloved storyteller. Christmas has always been a special time for the Vinyl Cafe. Each year, Stuart McLean's Christmas tours brought laughter and community to every town and city he visited across the country. The hilarious world of Dave and Morley was even more real -- more vibrant -- during the holidays. For many, these Christmas stories became beloved family traditions. Now, for the first time, they have been brought together in this special collection -- including the classic "Dave cooks the turkey as well as six new, never before published or aired on radio, Christmas stories. From mishaps with the Turlingtons' and the tale of a young Dave's first holiday disaster in Christmas in the narrows to the surprising Christmas ferret and the touching sign off in The Christmas card, these wonderful new stories will delight for years to come. Charming and filled with humour (often at Dave's expense), this book entertains on every page, reminding us what the holidays are all about. Come share Christmas with your friends at the Vinyl Cafe"-- Provided by publisher.

Keillor, Garrison — Radio presenters Stuart McLean (The Vinyl Cafe) and Garrison Keillor (A Prairie Home Companion, etc.) use folksy, gentle humor and small town settings in much of their written works. The authors do venture out of their usual writing haunts but the gentle tone and humor are always present. -- Melissa Gray
