    For lovers of Alexander McCall Smith, Nicholas Drayson introduces the charming Mr Malik and the East African Ornithological Society in A Guide to the Birds of East Africa. Reserved, honourable Mr Malik. You wouldn't notice him in a Nairobi street - except, perhaps, to comment on his carefully sculpted comb-over - but beneath his unprepossessing Price Range: $ - $   A beguiling novel that does for contemporary Kenya and its 1, species of birds what Alexander McCall Smith’s Ladies Detective series does for Botswana For the past three years, the widower Mr. Malik has been secretly in love with Rose Mbikwa, a woman who leads the weekly bird walks sponsored by the East African Ornithological : Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.

      About Birds of East Africa. This is the first comprehensive field guide dealing exclusively with the birds of this spetacular region. It covers all resident, migrant and vagrant species found in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda and Burundi. Over species are illustrated with full details all the plumages and major races likely to be encountered. The best current bird book is Zimmerman, Turner and Pearson's Birds of Kenya & Northern Tanzania. The hardback is very heavy and quite expensive, but there's a paperback edition that's also more affordable. Dave Richards' A Photographic Guide to the Birds of East Africa is very good if you're not quite so serious about birdwatching. Richard.

    Bad things happen in this book, but in many ways the book is about the goodness of people and the triumph of that goodness. Any plans for your next novel? I'm working on a couple of books at the moment—a crime story set in Sri Lanka and a sequel to A Guide to the Birds of East Africa. I wouldn't like to go on the record and say which one will.
