Vinyl Cafe Turns the Page

Publisher: Penguin Canada
A brand new collection of Vinyl Cafe stories, from the inimitable Stuart McLean, featuring a worldlier and wiser Dave and Morley.

Dave and Morley are growing older, Steph and Sam are growing up. Moving out and moving on.
     Dave and Morley's marriage has mellowed and deepened like a fine wine, Sam has developed a palate for girls and Gruyere, and Steph's found happiness with an artist who photographs roadkill.
     Everyone's growing wiser and worldlier--well, almost everyone.
     Yes, Dave still has trouble with the automatic car wash, defibrillators, and hot yoga, but he's come to appreciate Mary Turlington, and that's saying quite a bit.
     In this brand new collection of Vinyl Cafe stories, the more things change, the more things stay the same . . .
