The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency

Alexander McCall Smith
CATEGORIES: Classic/Culturally Significant

Despite being written by a ScottishZimbabwean author, the internationally beloved series shows an enormous love for Botswana, which becomes as much a character as the protagonist, Precious Ramotswe, who The New York Times Book Review lauded as the “Miss Marple of Botswana.” After becoming a worldwide bestseller, the first of the 18 books in the series was brought to the small screen in 2007 by acclaimed director Anthony Minghella.
