It is often said that the best things in life come in small packages; anyone in search of proof need look no further than the stories in this collection: brief, utterly engaging tales that offer lasting surprise and delight.

In Tiny Tales, Alexander McCall Smith explores romance, ambition, kindness, and happiness in thirty short stories. Here we meet the first Australian pope, who hopes to finally find some peace and quiet back home in Perth; a psychotherapist turned motorcycle racetrack manager; and an aspiring opera singer who gets her unlikely break onstage. And, of course, we spend time in McCall Smith’s beloved Scotland, where we are introduced to progressive Vikings, a group of housemates with complex romantic entanglements, and a couple of globe-trotting dentists.

These tales depict the full scope of human experience and reveal the rich tapestry of life—painted in miniature.

This book is terribly engaging and humorous. I smiled most of the way through and laughed audibly several times. I wasn’t intending to listen to it in one go, but there was no turning it off once it had started. I quickly purchased a hard copy to send to a friend after listening. My favorite book this year so far.
