It is a measure of the popularity of the Edinburgh-based author and his fiction that all tickets for An Evening of Entertainment with Alexander McCall Smith at the National Library of Scotland were snapped up within days of being available. Those fortunate ticket-holders at our event on Thursday 27 November will be introduced to Professor McCall Smith's latest series, The von Igelfeld Novels, and will hear him discuss recent developments in Botswana involving Mma Ramotswe, lady detective. The Full Cupboard of Life, the fifth book about the No 1 Ladies Detective Agency, won the writer the Saga Award for Wit, this year's new literary prize in the UK for a work of fiction or non-fiction by an author aged 50 or over.
