The Revolving Door of Life

A 44 Scotland Street Novel
by Alexander McCall Smith - Find out more about the author
For young Bertie Pollock, life in Edinburgh has just gotten immeasurably better. The enforced absence of his endlessly pushy mother Irene – currently consciousness-raising in a Bedouin harem (don't ask) – has manifold and immediate blessings: no psychotherapy, no Italian lessons, and no yoga classes. Bliss.
For Scotland Street's grown-ups, life throws up some new dilemmas. Matthew makes a discover that could make him even richer but also leaves him worried, Pat makes one that could make her poorer and her father miserable – unless that narcissist Bruce can help her out. And the Duke of Johannesburg, we discover, isn't exactly who he says he is. 
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 twenty-five million copies, he devoted his time to the writing of fiction and has seen his various series of books translated into over forty-six languages and become bestsellers throughout the world. These include the 44 Scotland Street novels, first published as a serial novel in the Scotsman, the Isabel Dalhousie novels, the Von Igelfeld series and the Corduroy Mansions novels.
