Reviews
Praise for the Cordury Mansions series

"[Here is a] wonderful world of realistic characters getting up to real mischief in McCall Smith's velvety prose and vivid imagination."
--USA Today

"McCall Smith is a writer of such fond, heartfelt geniality that . . . fans will be grateful that the series has just begun."
--Entertainment Weekly

"[McCall Smith] cooks up a delicious story that seems part Restoration comedy and part Victorian novel, tossed with a dash of mystery and a dollop of satire. . . . Comfortable, easy, homey."
--The Washington Post

"A nice little confectionery." --The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
"McCall Smith is the P.G. Wodehouse of our time, and we should be grateful for his prolificacy."
--Richmond Times-Dispatch

"You cannot beat McCall Smith for subtle musings shot through with insight and wit. His deft characterization enlivens the inner workings of everyday characters. His work offers a heartening view of a world that often appears heartless."
--The Daily Telegraph (London)

"Whimsical. . . . McCall Smith specializes in subplots that punctuate the book like polka dots, relying on his considerable literary skills to link them into a merry pattern of human events."
--The Washington Times

"Quirky and original. . . . Told with warmth, wit and intelligence, and McCall Smith's cast of characters are beautifully observed."
--Daily Express

"[Full] of warmth and wisdom and easy, accomplished writing that begs for a comfy chair."
--The Times (London)

"Very agreeable. . . . McCall Smith has . . . a rare and enviable gift."
--The Scotsman
