Heavenly Date And Other Flirtations Summary

Heavenly Date And Other Flirtations by Alexander McCall Smith

In these hilarious stories of perverse meetings, casual dates and romantic encounters, we are enthralled, saddened, inspired and surprised by the encounters we witness. 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.

Heavenly Date And Other Flirtations Reviews

The author's prose has the merits of simplicity, euphony and precision . . . This is art that conceals art. I haven't read anything with such unalloyed pleasure for a long time. * * Sunday Telegraph * *
Reminiscent of Roald Dahl in their dark ironies, these tales of the emotional unexpected are perceptive, deftly written and droll. -- Michel Faber
The people who inhabit these stories are funny, shocking, middle-class and sinister, the author's wacky imagination being the only constant we can always take for granted. -- Alan Taylor * * The Scotsman * *
