Mma Ramotswe's methods - and her results - are as unusual as the novels they inhabit ... All this activity is much less about whodunnit than why New York TIMES McCall Smith is a careful, emblematic writer who is beyond gifted, he is a natural storyteller. McCall Smith has once again charmed the sarongs off us The LIST [Adjoa Andoh's] melodious tones befit these heartwarming tales and she does a fantastis job of creating identifiable voices for each character FT MAGAZINE -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.
'The Kalaharl Typing School for Men' is the fourth novel in the widely acclaimed No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency series. Following on from 'Morallty for Beautiful Girls' we find Precious Ramotswe, the founder of Botswana's only detective agency now running her business from the garage of her fiance, that most gracious of men, Mr J.L.B. Matekoni. Having recovered from his illness, Mr J.L.B. Matekoni is back at the helm of Tlokweng Road Speedy Motors, and plans for the couple's wedding need to be made. But when, If ever, will they wed? Intriguing cases present themselves and Mma Ramotswe juggles new clients with her usual formidable talent, but things become unusually complicated when her first-class assistant Mma Makutsi decides to expand the agency by opening a much-needed typing school for men. Amongst her puplis Mma Makutsl finds an admirer, but Mma Ramotswe, knowing how men are, decides to dig deeper. Anthony Minghella and Sydney Pollack's company Mirage will be co-producing The No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency TV series with New Africa Media Films.'I was enchanted by the character of Precious Ramotswe and the sly humour of Alexander McCall Smith's writing, his deft evocation of a culture.' Anthony Minghella 'The No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency' received two Booker Judges' Special Recommendations in 1999 and was voted one of the 'International Books of the Year and the Millennium' by the Times Literary Supplement. 'Tears of the Giraffe' was selected as one of The Guardian's top ten Fiction paperbacks of the Year, 2000. 'The most entertaining read of the year.' The Guardian 'The author's prose has the merits of simplicity, euphony and precision. His descriptions leave one as if standing in the Botswanan landscape. This is art that conceals art. I haven't read anything with such unalloyed pleasure for a long time.' Anthony Daniels, The Sunday Telegraph 'It is not difficult to see why the director of 'The English Patient' and 'The Talented Mr Ripley', Anthony Minghella was so keen to produce the television series of these books in Africa. Smith is a careful, emblematic writer who is beyond gifted, he is a natural storyteller. Smith has once again charmed the sarongs off of us.' The List Alle Produktbeschreibungen
