Vinyl Cafe Diaries by Stuart McLean

I've already aired my opinions about Stuart McLean and his show last week, so suffice it to say that this is more of the same that you'd find in "Vinyl Cafe Unplugged". Cute, touching, occasionally very funny stories about Dave, Morley, et al. The twist in this book is that it's divided into sections that focus on each member of Dave's family. The best stories, in my opinion, are the ones about Dave. He has an amazing capacity for foolishness. In this book, he kidnaps a duck and brings it into his Halifax hotel room, makes a complete idiot of himself when asked to speak to a university class, and manages to make an absolute, hilarious disaster of babysitting three small children.

Other books I've read by this author:
