About the Author

Alexander McCall Smith is a Professor of Medical Law as well as the author of over 50 books from FORENSIC ASPECTS OF SLEEP to THE CRIMINAL LAW OF BOTSWANA, THE PERFECT HAMBURGER (for children) to PORTUGUESE IRREGULAR VERBS (short stories).


Tears of the Giraffe and Morality for Beautiful Girls continue Mma Ramotswe's business of the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency, the only female-operated detective agency in Botswana. The agency deals in human drama and mystery rather than guns and blood. Insight and intuition provide solutions as Precious Ramotswe; her assistant, Mma Makutsi; and Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni of Tlokweng Road Speedy Motors impart Botswanian pride and worldly wisdom. Reader Lisette Lecat portrays these characters and the village ambiance superbly. Highly recommended for all audiobook collections.-Sandy Glover, West Linn P.L., OR Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

** 'I was enchanted by the character of Precious Ramotswe and the sly humour of Alexander McCall Smith's writing, his deft evocation of a culture' - Anthony Minghella ** 'So elegant and understated is the author's style that the novel seems to transcend age' - Trevor Royle
