No. 1 Ladies: Author's Diary
Novelists usually get short shrift once their books get optioned for TV and film. But HBO’s “No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency” is complemented with an online mini-doc series narrated by Alexander McCall Smith (the man behind the bestselling book series). In this ‘Author’s Diary,’ he sheds light on what inspired the stories brought to life in the books while revealing cultural insights into his native Botswana. A little education to go with the drama.
