“McCall Smith is a literary phenomenon”
The Daily Telegraph
It’s 15 years since The No.1 Ladies’ Detective Agency introduced the world to Precious Ramotswe, Botswana’s leading (in fact, only) female PI. Since then her creator, Alexander McCall Smith, has become one of the UK’s best-loved authors, selling over 20 million books, launching several successful new series (including Scotland Street), and becoming perhaps the second most famous resident of Edinburgh’s New Town (where JK Rowling also lives). In this special event, in conversation with Mick Heaney, McCall Smith comes to Dublin to talk about the characters and themes that have won him millions of readers all over the world.
