Quotes & Awards

  • “McCall Smith's relaxed, almost meditative narrative is not only filled with profound insights into the human condition but also with intensely vivid descriptions of the sights, sounds, and smells of the southern African landscape…Breathtakingly described and addictively readable, this volume of McCall Smith’s series is as appealing as its lovable main character. In a word: Precious.”

    Barnes & Noble

  • “The overall feeling [in Blue Shoes and Happiness] is one of a pleasant dream, of gentle wonder that such people can exist in a conflicted world. And Lecat is the perfect choice to read the story.”
