Melanie Lindstrom asked Alexander McCall Smith:

So many of your books, and the characters within them, are imbued with kindness. What are your thoughts on this (often overlooked) quality in society today?

Alexander McCall Smith You;re right about kindness being overlooked. I think it is an absolutely important quality, and yet we tend not to celebrate it enough. I like to put it into my books because I admire it when I encounter it. AMcS
