In these hilarious stories of perverse meetings, casual dates and romantic encounters, we are enthralled, saddened, inspired and surprised by the encounters we're made privy to. McCall Smith, a master of the unexpected and a seamless storyteller, revels in offering us the quirky complications inherent in entanglements which human beings engineer for themselves - entanglements that can be shocking, edifying, compulsive, complicated and sometimes, completely disastrous.

This is an exceptional collection of stories from an author whose rapidly growing audience delights in his extraordinary imagination and delicious insights into the endlessly fascinating peculiarities of the human condition.

A book of short stories, most being of the genre of tales with no endings. The only story I found really satisfying was the one in which an obnoxious date gets eaten by a crocodile. A few others are worth reading and a few others aren't. I'll stick to the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency
