The 1998 softcover book from Stuart McLean.
"Home from the Vinyl Cafe" takes us into a year in the life of Dave, Morley, Stephanie and Sam as they bump and stumble from one Christmas fiasco (Dave's disastrous yet inspired attempts to cook a turkey) to the next (Dave and Sam wreak havoc at Polly Anderson's annual Christmas soirée). In between, we learn of Dave and Morley's first meeting, on ice, and Stephanie's own early adventures in love. We hear of Dave and Morley's sometimes misguided, but always heartfelt, efforts at parenting (Dave finds out the hard way that bringing frogs to school is not a great idea and that having a children's birthday party is only slightly less challenging than hosting the Olympics).
Whether it's sending the kids to camp, putting up the Christmas lights or losing control at the grocery store, in the hands of master storyteller Stuart McLean, everyday events are seen for all their challenges and hilarious possibilities. Warm, witty and moving, these are stories that will walk right into your life and make themselves at home.
