What is 44 Scotland Street about?
First published as a serial in the newspaper The Scotsman, the 44 Scotland Street series is written by Alexander McCall Smith and is about the eccentric residents and neighbors of 44 Scotland Street in the city of Edinburgh.
Not unlike Tales of the City, this is the lives and times of a group of people, from the remarkably precocious boy six-year-old Bertie to Big Lou, the owner of a coffee bar, or even to Cyril, a dog with the gold tooth. There are love triangles, friendships a lost painting, happiness, deception, marriage, break-ups and much more.
