Praise

“Devilishly clever. . . . Often droll, often touching, the Scotland Street stories are always delightful to read.”
     –Booklist (starred review)

“Eighty more bite-sized chapters bring curious readers up to date on the latest doings at 44 Scotland Street and its Edinburgh environs. . . . The neighborhood’s legion of fans will devour each chapter and be sorry when they’ve turned the last page.”
     –Kirkus Reviews

“Full of charm, gentleness and penetrating insight.”
     —The Daily Express (Scotland)
 
“You see the whole extent of McCall Smith’s gentle comedy of manners. . . . While it is written with abundant wit . . . there are equally large dollops of wisdom too.”
     —Scotland on Sunday
