About the Author

Alexander McCall Smith is the author of over eighty books on a wide array of subjects.

Then in 1999 he achieved global recognition for his award-winning No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency series, and thereafter devoted his time to the writing of fiction, including the 44 Scotland Street and the von Igelfeld series. His books have been translated into forty-six languages. He lives in Edinburgh with his wife Elizabeth, a doctor.

Reviews

Praise for Alexander McCall Smith:

"To say McCall Smith is a literary phenomenon doesn't quite describe what has happened. He has become more of a movement, a worldwide club for the dissemination of gentle wisdom and good cheer."
"--The Telegraph

""McCall Smith has few peers in capturing the quiet moments of people's lives, and his empathetic lead has one of the biggest hearts in modern literature."
"--Publishers Weekly
"


"From the Hardcover edition."

INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER

"Does not disappoint.... Wonderful and addictive."
--"newbooks"

"Smith wisely doesn't tamper with his winning recipe for literary comfort food.... As always, the detection is secondary to Smith's continuing exploration of the rhythms and social dynamics of small-town African life."
--"Publishers Weekly" (starred review)

"I love Mma Ramotswe more and more.... These books always leave me feeling more positive, more optimistic, more content.... Fans will find nothing disappointing here, other than the soft sigh as you turn the final page, knowing you must wait a little time again for the next installment!"
--"The Bookbag "(UK)
