Quotes & Highlights

“One of the most entrancing literary treats of many a year…A tapestry of extraordinary nuance and richness.” —Wall Street Journal
Alexander McCall Smith’s The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency


This Zimbabwe-born Scot and former professor of medical law became an overnight sensation in the U.S. with the 2002 release of The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency, “a literary confection of such gossamer deliciousness that one feels it can only be good for you” (The New York Times). Starring Precious Ramotswe, a charming and delightfully cunning Botswana woman who sets up shop in a small storefront under the African sky, the award-winning mystery series has become a beloved international bestseller. The seventh installment is due out in April 2006.
