Bertie's Guide to Life and Mothers


Once more, we catch up with the delightful goings-on in the fictitious 44 Scotland Street from Alexander McCall Smith. With customary charm and deftness, Alexander McCall Smith gives us another instalment in this popular series, now running in its ninth season in The Scotsman. Anything could happen to Bertie and the gang…


‘Mr. McCall Smith’s writing is… blissful. He doesn’t shy away from the darker realities of life with his poignant exposures of human frailty, yet, somehow, he makes the world a better place’ Country Life

‘[An] entertaining book written by this master of observation’  Toowoomba Chronicle

‘Bertie’s Guide to Life and Mothers lets us immediately relax, secure in the knowledge that we are in a safe pair of hands as McCall Smith is an engaging and a witty guide to the goings on (and comings off) at fictional 44 Scotland Street’ Sunday Express

‘Mr McCall Smith’s writing…is blissful’ Country Life magazine
