Carol's Book Review

“In a Time of Distance & Other Poems” by Alexander McCall Smith
Carol's Book Review

Alexander McCall Smith, the author of the popular No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency novels, offers up a series of poems focusing on what matters most to him: friendship, love, animals, places, and reading. Many have an author introduction which gives the reader a bit of background on why a particular poem was written. I particularly enjoyed the poems based on books and reading. The illustrations are by Iain McIntosh and are beautiful. This is a delightful little book.

This title is available in print at the Library.
