Return to Spinner's Inlet


by Don Hunter

tagged: short stories (single author), small town & rural

A collection of connected short stories set in a fictional town in BC’s Gulf Islands where attitude is everything, and everybody has one.

For years, “Spinner's Inlet” was Don Hunter's beloved serialized newspaper column that ran in the Province, Vancouver’s newspaper. Eventually Hunter compiled the columns to create Spinner's Inlet, the bestselling book published in 1989. Thirty years later, Hunter revisits the fictional coastal community and its quirky inhabitants, who are ready to entertain a brand-new generation of readers.

Although the cast of characters has evolved, Samson and Rachel Spinner are still around, suitably older and possibly a little wiser, as are some of the more familiar folks.

A humorous read that will appeal to fans of Jack Hodgins, Bill Gaston, and Pat Carney, Return to Spinner's Inlet will draw you in, charm you to bits, and leave you chuckling with recognition.

About the Author
Don Hunter emigrated from the UK to Canada in 1961, where he earned a B.Ed from the University of British Columbia. In 1969 he joined The Province, a daily newspaper in Vancouver, as a theatre critic, reporter, editor, and eventually as a writer for the up-front opinion column "Out and About." A personal memoir of his teaching experiences in northern BC led to a CBC television movie and a subsequent miniseries drama in 1989. That same year, his collection of short stories, Spinner's Inlet, was shortlisted for the Stephen Leacock Prize.Hunter currently lives in Langley, BC with his wife, June. They are the parents of two daughters, Susan and Taryn.
