“A life without stories would be no life at all. And stories bound us, did they not, one to another, the living to the dead, people to animals, people to the land?”

~ About Alexander McCall Smith ~

Alexander McCall Smith, often referred to as ‘Sandy’,  is one of the world’s most prolific and best-loved authors.

For many years he was a professor of Medical Law and worked in universities in the UK and abroad before turning his hand to writing fiction. He has written and contributed to more than 100 books. His first book, The White Hippo—a children’s book, was published by Hamish Hamilton in 1980.

With the publication of The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency series Alexander became a household name. The series has now sold over twenty million copies in the English language alone.

His books have been translated into forty-six languages and become bestsellers around the world. His series include 44 Scotland Street, the Isabel Dalhousie novels, the von Igelfeld books and Corduroy Mansions, which started life as an engaging online cross-media series.

Alexander has penned many other books including stand-alone novels, non-fiction titles and children's stories.

Alexander has received many literary awards honorary doctorates from universities in Europe and North America.

We are delighted to welcome him to Edgemont Village!

“Our heads may be small, but they are as full of memories
as the sky may sometimes be full of swarming bees,
thousands and thousands of memories, of smells,
of places, of little things that happened to us and which
came back, unexpectedly, to remind us who we are.”

Alexander McCall Smith

Jem, the bookstore dog.

“You know the best example of sincerity? 
The absolute gold standard?  Angus pointed to the door,  outside which Cyril was waiting patiently.  A dog.  Have you ever met
an insincere dog  - a dog who hides his true feelings?"
