The story revolves around the comings and goings at No. 44 Scotland Street, a fictitious building in a real street in Edinburgh. Immediately recognisa ble are the Edinburgh chartered surveyor, stalwart of the Conservative Asso ciation, who dreams of membership of Scotland's most exclusive golf club. W e have the pushy Stockbridge mother, and her prodigiously talented five-yea r-old son, who is making good progress with the saxophone and with his Ital ian. Then there is Domenica Macdonald who is that type of Edinburgh lady wh o sees herself as a citizen of a broader intellectual world. In McCall Smit h's hands such characters retain charm and novelty, simultaneously arousing both mirth and empathy. 44 Scotland Street is vintage McCall Smith, tackli ng issues of trust and honesty, snobbery and hypocrisy, love and loss, but all with great lightness of touch. Clever, elegant and funny, this is a nov el that provides huge entertainment but which is underpinned by the moral d ilemmas of everyday life and the characters' struggles to resolve them.
