What did we have before selfies? Snapshots.

Curious vintage snapshots found in Edinburgh inspired McCall Smith to follow each snap with a story to explain it. The tales are gentle and interesting and unexpected; some are whimsical; some are brushed by tragedy. There are developments in love and chances not taken.  A ventriloquists’ dummy hits the big time with his true love; a woman steps out of a ray of light and into a new life; the lonely schoolmaster looks for love with a thumbtack.  Lovers of gentle reads will find much to enjoy here. Recommended for fans of McCall Smith in general.
