Publisher's Summary

National Best Seller

One of Newfoundland's funniest and most beloved storytellers offers his cure for the Covid blues.

Is there a more sociable province than Newfoundland and Labrador? Or anywhere in Canada with a greater reputation for coming to the rescue of those in need? 

At this time of Covid, singer, songwriter and best-selling author Alan Doyle is feeling everyone's pain. Off the road and spending more days at home than he has since he was a child hawking cod tongues on the wharfs of Petty Harbour, he misses the crowds and companionship of performing across the country and beyond. But most of all he misses the cheery clamour of pubs in his hometown, where one yarn follows another so quickly "you have to be as ready as an Olympian at the start line to get your tale in before someone is well into theirs already". We're all experiencing our own version of that deprivation, and Alan, one of Newfoundland's finest storytellers, wants to offer a little balm. 

All Together Now is a gathering in book form - a virtual Newfoundland pub. There are adventures in foreign lands, including an apparently filthy singalong in Polish (well, he would have sung along if he'd understood the language), a real-life ghost story involving an elderly neighbour, a red convertible and a clown horn, a potted history of his social drinking, and heartwarming reminiscences from another past world, childhood - all designed to put a smile on the faces of the isolated-addled. 

Alan Doyle has never been in better form - nor more welcome. As he says about this troubling time: "We get through it. We do what has to be done. Then, we celebrate. With the best of them".

Grab a chair and raise a jar

A delightful read mimicking hanging at the pub with friends spinning yarns. Another solid effort by Alan Doyle

Some books just NEED to be heard

Alan Doyle is a master story teller, and listening to him recount these tales is a wonderful experience. It’s the first audio book I’ve ever finished thinking “I can’t wait to listen again!”

Like catching up with an old friend, but funnier

I wish it were longer!

I read this via audiobook, read by Alan.

The thing I love about Alan Doyle is how earnest he is in his own failings, successes, fanboy-ish nature, delights, woes, and just in general as a human being. It's in his music, and in his storytelling. There's no deception in it. I mean, obviously, it's cleaned up about the edges and worded nicely for a good story.. but if you've ever seen him perform live, you can hear some of his facial expressions as he reads this.

You could say he's like an "open book", and you wouldn't be wrong.

I especially loved the bit about how he met Russell Crowe and ended up on the set of Robin Hood - The Frenchman and The Bird was also both typical and hilarious. Absolutely wonderful.

what are you at

wonderful way to feel like Alan is sitting on the otherside of the kitchen table telling you the stories of a troubadour.
i am so glad Alan narrated his own book. leaves me smiling, as I'm sure he meant to.

Alan Doyle does it again. Another masterpiece.

My favourite Doyle book thus far. The stories are great, and the performance (by the author) is even greater.

The story involving Russell Crowe and Robin Hood is worth the price of admission alone.
