Like an old friend who's turned up in town, Stuart McLean returns with Stories from the Vinyl Cafe , his bestselling collection of tales based on his enormously popular Vinyl Cafe radio program.

The collection features Canada's much-loved fictional family: Dave, Morley, Stephanie and Sam. Stories from the Vinyl Cafe also introduces a host of other wonderfully imagined characters, such as Margaret Dwyer, a suburban housewife who startles herself by shoplifting a pepperoni sausage, and Flora Perriton, who is consumed with thoughts of lost opportunities when an old friend passes away. Then there's Ed, who-overcome by the death of his favourite rock star-embarks on a pilgrimage to New York City to meet the singer's widow.

As always, the stories in this rewarding and irreverent collection prove that Stuart McLean is indeed a national treasure.

Fast, fun read but I think I lost something in reading these and not hearing them.
