I discovered last night that this gorgeous book has been adapted for the screen. It is to be shown on BBC television at Easter and the rest of the world will see it later.
In view of my recent posts on the quality of television adaptations, I feel rather sheepish about saying how delighted I was to catch this news. I do hope the film does justice to the book. These pictures of Alexander McCall Smith suggest that he is happy with the production.
I'm just off to a weekend conference and I think I might smuggle my copy of No 1 Ladies in with me; I hope I don't laugh at inappropriate moments during the keynote presentations!
