  • About the Edition

    Corduroy Mansions is the affectionate nickname given to a genteel, crumbling mansion block in London"s vibrant Pimlico neighborhood and the home turf of a captivating collection of quirky and altogether McCall-Smithian characters. There"s the middle-aged wine merchant William, who"s trying to convince his reluctant twenty-four-year-old son, Eddie, to leave the nest; and Marcia, the boutique caterer who has her sights set on William. There"s also the (justifiably) much-loathed Member of Parliament Oedipus Snark; his mother, Berthea, who"s writing his biography and hating every minute of it; and his long-suffering girlfriend, Barbara, a literary agent who would like to be his wife (but, then, she"d like to be almost anyone"s wife). There"s the vitamin evangelist, the psychoanalyst, the art student with a puzzling boyfriend and Freddie de la Hay, the Pimlico terrier who insists on wearing a seat belt and is almost certainly the only avowed vegetarian canine in London.
