Compass - Alexander McCall Smith
Geraldine Doogue meets Alexander McCall Smith, one of the world’s best-selling authors made famous by a cheerful ‘traditionally built’ Botswanan female detective, the principal of his No.1 Ladies’ Detective Agency series.
Zimbabwe-born McCall Smith was professor of Medical Law at Edinburgh University before Precious Ramotswe stepped into his life, and found an adoring worldwide readership. He writes deceptively gentle and funny stories about people and their foibles, set around everyday moral dilemmas and changing values. Including his academic publications, he’s written more than 60 books, translated into 42 languages and sold in the millions.
