Review

INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER

“Though he affectionately mocks the stock characters he has set up, McCall Smith also shows an Austen-like sensitivity to the interactions of daily life. His observations are perceptive without being overbearing. . . . McCall Smith’s prose is smooth, easy and fluid, and though both author and reader view the characters from the distance of humour, they are sensitively drawn, endearing and easy to understand. . . . The plot is filled with suspense. ” The Gazette (Montreal)

“It’s possible the novels of Alexander McCall Smith have been invented as a cunning antidote to the accelerations of modern times. He takes his readers through the literary equivalent of a star gate in to a slower world, where the actions of the inhabitants suit the measured pace of his prose. He makes us wait.” The Globe and Mail

Praise for Alexander McCall Smith:
“There’s no mystery as to why Alexander McCall Smith’s books are everywhere.... His works are engaging, delightful events, immersing readers in a world that is foreign, yet familiar, where good people try to do their best in life, with mixed results.”
Calgary Herald

“McCall Smith is a splendid storyteller.”
The Globe and Mail

“[His] writing [is] very accessible, yet the prose so beautiful.”
—Amy Tan

“McCall Smith is a treasure of a writer whose books deserve immediate devouring.”
The Guardian (London)
