His work – which includes the Corduroy Mansions series, the Isabel Dalhousie novels and the world’s longest-running serial novel, 44 Scotland Street – has been translated into over forty-six languages, becoming bestsellers throughout the world. His highly successful No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency series has sold over 25 million copies alone.

To mark the release of not one but three books in the past year, McCall Smith returned to Australia to reflect on his expansive career over four decades.

For one night only in Melbourne with host Melissa Cranenburgh, he traversed his extensive body of work, from children’s books to best-selling detective novels, and shared stories from his varied life in literature.
