Product description

Review

"A portrait of bourgeois Edinburgh that idiosyncratically mixes whimsy, wit and wisdom with affectionate comedy. A lot of comedy is cruel, mocking and targeted. McCall Smith's twists reality in the opposite direction, towards friendship and thoughtfulness, and that rarest of things, kindly caricature. The sun may not shine over Scotland, but in Scotland Street there's no gloom in sight." "The Scotsman"
"Captivating.... McCall Smith's charming, quirky and exasperating characters make you smile in spite of yourself." "The Independent"
"In the eighth installment of his 44 Scotland Street saga, it's again clear [McCall Smith] is no stranger to villains and injustice but somehow maintains a hopeful and kind-hearted view of the world." "The Age "(Australia)
