The latest goings-on at Corduroy Mansions by Alexander McCall Smith
by Alexander McCall Smith - Find out more about the author

Following on from the huge success of the 44 Scotland Street series, Alexander McCall Smith has ‘moved house’ to a crumbling four-storey mansion in Pimlico – Corduroy Mansions. It is inhabited by a glorious assortment of characters: among them, Oedipus Snark, the first ever nasty Lib Dem MP, who is so detestable his own mother, Berthea, is writing an unauthorised biography about him; and one small vegetarian dog, Freddie de la Hay, who has the ability to fasten his own seatbelt. (Although Corduroy Mansions is a fictional name, the address is now registered by the Post Office.)

Also available, the second in the Corduroy Mansions Series The Dog Who Came in From the Cold and the latest in the 44 Scotland Street Series The Importance of Being Seven.

And look out for two brand new books coming soon from Alexander McCall Smith this summer - Precious and the Monkeys: Precious Ramotswe’s Very First Case and Bertie Plays The Blues, the next instalment in the 44 Scotland Street Series.

Alexander McCall Smith is one of the world’s most prolific and most popular authors. For many years he was a professor of Medical Law, then, after the publication of his highly successful No 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency series, which has sold over fifteen million copies, he devoted his time to the writing of fiction and has seen his various series of books translated into over 40 languages and become bestsellers throughout the world. These include the Scotland Street novels, first published as a serial novel in The Scotsman, the Isabel Dalhousie novels, and the Von Igelfeld series.
