In the 3rd volume of life at Corduroy Mansions, Alexander McCall Smith's genius for storytelling, eye for human foibles and joy in the absurdities of modern life conspire to produce page after page of witty entertainment and beautufully observed characters. With friends like these, who needs, well, anything else?
