Chance Developments

Author(s): Alexander McCall Smith

Fiction - Contemporary

Shorn of context, unknown people look out to us from old and anonymous photographs, and each image has magical appeal. Alexander McCall Smith, one of the world's best-loved writers, has reimagined the stories of these individuals in this charming, humorous, unexpected and poignant collection. The fifteen photographs captured here are all from days long gone - some are formal in setting with a sepia tone, some are hazy family snaps.

Product Information

'The photos are eloquent and moving, the stories delve deeply into possibilities, love and friendship, joy and melancholy... as I read, I found myself drawn back to the photo, to look again and ponder. Alexander McCall Smith has transformed five forgotten photos into a discovery of delight' - Liz Robinson
