From the creator of The No.1 Ladies’ Detective Agency comes a medley of perverse couplings, casual dates and romantic encounters: hilarious tales that will sadden, inspire and surprise. McCall Smith, a master of the unexpected and a seamless storyteller, revels in offering us the quirky complications inherent in entanglements which human beings engineer for themselves-entanglement that can be shocking, unedifying, complex and sometimes, completely disastrous.


I haven’t read anything with such unalloyed pleasure for a long time.
-Sunday Telegraph

Reminiscent of Roald Dahl in their dark ironies, these tales of the emotional unexpected are perceptive, deftly written and droll.
-Michel Faber, author of The Crimson Petal and the White

The people who inhabit these stories are funny, shocking, middle-class and sinister, the author’s wacky imagination being the only constant we can always take for granted.
