Product Description


“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

This book is not written by celebrated Canadian author Stuart McLean, but he compiled the stories from the host of tales that his fans sent in to Mr. McLean for a segment of his radio show: "Time Now for the Vinyl Café Story Exchange." The stories are required to be brief and true. As a result, all the stories are an average of two to three pages in length, and some are merely a single page.

The stories are funny, too. Think of this book as "Chicken Soup for the Literary-Minded Person's Soul."

Currently, the hard-cover version is all that is available in print, but a paperback version will be available in the fall of 2014. it makes a great gift or a great bathroom reader. It's also a plus for those who enjoy reading in bed just before lights-out or for those who, like me, prefer full stories that can be read in a single sitting, no matter where you might sit.

Much as I love Stuart McLean?s own stories, it was wonderful to read this collection of reflections from all over Canada. Listeners were asked to write a story about a moment in time they had experienced. The only two criteria were (1) it had to be true and (2) it had to be short. This collection brings together the best stories from the ten years the Story Exchange segment has been running on the Vinyl Cafe. Some of the stories are cute, some are funny, some are poignant, but all of them evoke emotions in the reader and leave you wanting to read the next one. And because they?re short, you can read as many or as few of the stories as you have time for in your busy day.
