あらすじ・解説

In Espresso Tales, Alexander McCall Smith returns home to Edinburgh and the glorious cast of his own tales of the city, the residents of 44 Scotland Street, with a new set of challenges for each one of them. Bruce, the intolerably vain and perpetually deluded ex-surveyor, is about to embark on a new career as a wine merchant, while his long-suffering flatmate Pat MacGregor, set up by matchmaking Domenica Macdonald, finds herself invited to a nudist picnic in Moray Place in the pursuit of true love. Prodigious six-year-old Bertie Pollock wants a boy's life of fishing and rugby, not yoga and pink dungarees, and he plots rebellion against his bossy, crusading mother Irene and his psychotherapist Dr Fairbairn. But when Bertie's longed-for trip to Glasgow with his ineffectual father Stuart ends with Bertie taking money off legendary Glasgow hard man Lard O'Connor at cards, it looks as though Bertie should have been more careful what he wished for. And all the time it appears that both Irene Pollock and Dr Fairbairn are engaged in a struggle with dark secrets and unconscious urges of their own.

book's fine, reader not so much...

The book, as expected, is amusing.But it has a wee problem: given that it's set in Edinburgh with entirely Scottish characters, why oh why have it read in an English accent? (Unless, of course, I'm mistaken and they're all incomers from the home counties....) Irritating: this is why I give it only 3 stars.

Great

I think that Alexander McCall smiths series of 44 Scotland street books are absolutely excellent. It is amusing and you feel like you are sitting in Irene's house seeing her talk about the bus Bertie should take or at Dominicas house listening to her adventures In India I love them. I highly recommend.
