Always a good laugh, always a good tale, Dave's stories never disappoint. McLean is master storyteller, mixing grotesque situations with emotion, spinning tales that always make sense despite the crazy endings. In this series, he turns to Dave's past and despite some nostalgia, the stories never sink into pathos, making them faded postcards of the past.
Despite all this knee-slapping humour, McLean knows how to tug at heart strings, which is why we turn to them time and again. Dave's family isn't a caricature, but rather a little bit of all of us.
Dave's childhood stories in Cape Breton are most charming.
Stewart McLean is my favourite short story teller - not recognized enough in literary circles.
He is the one who can make you laugh out loud and next minute bring tears to your eyes with a beautiful conclusion.
Heartwarming, Of all of his books, this is the one I enjoyed the most.Every story was charming.
Another fabulous collection of Vinyl Cafe stories. I can hear Stuart McLean's voice telling the stories as I read them. Very enjoyable!
