Nicola Pollock ponders the obligation to tolerate those we dislike, perhaps intensely, and compares Irene Pollock to Agrippina, mother of Nero.

Since then he has devoted his time to the writing of fiction and has seen his various series of books translated into over forty-six languages and become bestsellers throughout the world.

Angus had never fallen for that particular attempt to sugar the pill of local deindustrialisation and the deskilling that went with it. There is astute social observances and deep philosophical musings on a range of topics from the mundane to the deep. Meanwhile, further up in the New Town, Bruce Anderson's property development plans are thwarted by a sudden crisis of conscience that leads to a shocking revelation.These include the 44 Scotland Street novels, first published as a serial novel in the Scotsman, the Isabel Dalhousie novels, the Von Igelfeld series and the Corduroy Mansions novels. Sister Maria-Fiore, who's a conventional thinker, will never give the prize to an outré modern artist.

Meanwhile, Angus's wife Domenica, an independent anthropologist, is planning to stealthily replace her husband's two antiquated dress jackets. This series won two major cross-media awards - Association of Online Publishers Digital Publishing Award 2009 for a Cross Media Project and the New Media Age award. I would like to talk about the things we talk about, the small things, whatever happened in the world. The latest entry in AMS’s 44 Scotland Street series finds Irene raising her ugly head and wanting Bertie to spend 3 months with her in Aberdeen where she is pursuing her PhD in psychology.

Bertie confides his unhappy situation to his best friend in Edinburgh, Ranald Braveheart Macpherson, and the rest is (hilarious) history. Despite the fact that little happens in the way of plot, this book made me laugh out loud many times, boil with fury and frustration.

There was no fixed ordinance stipulating that men should wear sober trousers: fund managers, lawyers and accountants could dress in grey and black if they wished – he, as an artist, preferred something livelier. My sincere thank you to Penguin Random House Canada and NetGalley for the absolute privilege of reading this most charming series. Ultimately, it falls to Bertie’s best friend, Ranald Braveheart MacPherson, to rescue Bertie, and that involves theft from a safe, a train journey, defenestration and close contact with ewes.He's living his best life in Edinburgh with his mother away in Aberdeen until Irene announces she wants him there for three months and Nicola thinks it will become permanent. Alexander is also the author of collections of short stories, academic works, and over thirty books for children. After studying art, she went on to work as an illustrator on various projects, including books on science, astronomy and animal behaviour. There are tribulations as well as celebrations in this the next instalment in the 44 Scotland Street series. But a chance meeting with Sister Maria Fiore gives him a twinge of conscience but he's not sure if he can back out now.
