Internationally beloved bestselling author Alexander McCall Smith calls his hour-long chat with Word By Word host Gil Mansergh "something quite extraordinary...a real conversation." The creator of The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency has over 100 titles in print.  A fabled raconteur, McCall-Smith shares anecdotes and advice for other writers while reading selected passages from his latest challenge— the updating of a classic Jane Austen novel in Emma: A Modern Retelling.
