44 Scotland Street Series

44 Scotland Street Series

First published as a serial in The Scotsman newspaper, 44 Scotland Street follows the lives of some of Edinburgh’s most colourful characters including twenty year old Pat who has just moved into a flat with Bruce, an extremely narcissistic, athletic young man. Their neighbour is an eccentric widow named Domenica, while Irene and her five year old son Bertie, a saxophone prodigy and fluent Italian speaker, live downstairs.

Alexander McCall Smith has so far written eight books in the 44 Scotland Street series, each painting a delightful and witty portrait of Edinburgh society.
