Summary

Winner of the British Book Awards, Author of the Year, 2004.
Winner of the CWA Dagger in the Library Award, 2004.

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 the entanglements that human beings engineer for themselves - entanglements that can be shocking, unedifying, complex, and sometimes completely disastrous.

Critic reviews

I haven't read anything with such unalloyed pleasure for a long time." (Sunday Telegraph)
"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." (Scotsman)
