This is the full length publication of a serialized novel that Scottish author Alexander McCall Smith wrote for his local paper in Edinburgh. There is, or will be, a sequel. The story line follows the interconnected lives of the occupants of the title address, and their various friends, through relationships, jobs, personal problems, and the like. There is narcissistic Bruce and his roommate Pat, a young woman taking her second year off from university to work in an art gallery; the lively older woman Domenica who knows everybody; and little Bertie, a five-year-old whose Mum is pushing him right past childhood into Italian lessons and the saxophone. This is charming, as all Smith's work is, and a light, easy read.

I like the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series, but I find I enjoy the author's other works even more. It's fast-moving, charming, absolutely right on with human foibles and Edinburgh city life and odd roommates.

I just loved all of the people in this book. The second book is great too! The second in the series in Expresso Tales, and in Jan 08 there is a third. This book came from small stories in a Scottish paper. The stories became so popular, he decided to put them together into a book. I love all the characters have little quirks and they make for very intersting reads

This book starts slow but the characters are intriguing and you are interested in their outcome. A good read from the author of No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency.
