A couple of days ago I was wondering around our local Barnes and Noble book store looking for I know not what for sure. I came across this recent hardback from McCall Smith. I'm fairly sure he dictates his books to at least two amanuenses as he walks about his Georgian house in Edinburgh, perhaps even as he walks up and down Princes St. I know I haven't finished all of his #1 Ladies Detective Agency stories, and I have barely touched those in the Isabel Dalhousie series. I just can't keep up.
Every one that I have read have been enjoyable, about everyday life in Botswana—the #1 series—and then the adventures of some fairly nice upper middle class folks in modern day Edinburgh—the Dalhousie series—and another one I forget what it's called.
