The Vinyl Record Collection of Stories, Volume I is a coming-of-age story about Trey Carte, his social timeline—a soundtrack of ten chapters, and the budding relationship with his dad. This compelling collection of stories is set in the borough of Belle Vernon, located in Western Pennsylvania.The time is 1977 at a small house on Water Street. A place where the wealth of rich music, a vast collection of vinyl, creates a unique cohesiveness for Trey and his dad. And with the turntable of time spinning, we follow Trey’s challenges and celebrations. In Volume I, the velocity of vinyl moves to a learning curve with subjects like exploration, adventure, and acknowledgment. The variety of music is poetically pronounced in these short-story chapters. The narrative of Trey Carte, and his relationship with that music prospers chapter by chapter—song by song.
