About the Author

Alexander McCall Smith is Professor of Medical Law at the University of Edinburgh and the author of over fifty books. These range from specialist titles such as Forensic Aspects of Sleep to The Criminal Law of Botswana and The Children of Wax, a collection of African folk tales. But he is best known for writing The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series, which has achieved bestseller status on four continents.


In these sequential collections of stories by the author of the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency, the venue is Europe rather than Botswana. Dr. Moriz-Maira von Ingelfeld, professor at the Institute of Romance Philology in Regensburg, Germany, and his colleagues Dr. Florianus Prinzel and Dr. Detlev Amadeus Unterholzer share in eight comic vignettes based on the classic form of minutiae inflated to monstrous proportions. In one installment, von Ingelfeld falls in love with his dentist. Through procrastination in declaring his amour, his colleague becomes engaged to her first. Even Paul Hecht's lively narration with accurate pronunciation of European languages can't breathe the charm of Gabarone into these novellas. Purchase for demand for Smith fans.-Sandy Glover, Camas P.L., WA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

"In the halls of academe, a setting fraught with ego-driven battles for power and prestige [Alexander McCall Smith] has rendered yet another one-of-a-kind character: the bumbling but brilliant Dr. Mortiz-Maria von Igelfeld . . . . [a] deftly rendered trilogy [with] endearingly eccentric characters." --Chicago Sun-Times
