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 – entanglements that can be shocking, unedifying, complex and sometimes completely disastrous.

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
Reminiscent of Roald Dahl in their dark ironies, these tales of the emotional unexpected are perceptive, deftly written and droll
