Return to Spinner's Inlet


by Don Hunter

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

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 a beloved serialized newspaper column created by Don Hunter that ran in the Province, Vancouver’s newspaper. Eventually, Hunter compiled the columns and turned them into Spinner's Inlet, the bestselling book published in 1989. Now, thirty years later, Hunter is revisiting the quirky inhabitants of this fictional coastal community, 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 faces from this fictional village in BC's Gulf Islands, where attitude is everything and everybody has one.

A humorous read that’s perfect for fans of Jack Hodgins, Bill Gaston, and Pat Carney, Return to Spinner's Inlet will have you chuckling with recognition.

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.
