Maeve's Times

by Maeve Binchy

ORION PUBLISHING GROUP | October 22, 2013 | Trade Paperback

Maeve's Times is rated 5 out of 5 by 1.
''As someone who fell off a chair not long ago trying to hear what they were saying at the next table in a restaurant, I suppose I am obsessively interested in what some might consider the trivia of other people''s lives.''

Maeve Binchy is well known for her bestselling novels, the most recent of which was A WEEK IN WINTER. But for many years Maeve was a journalist, writing for the Irish Times. From ''The Student Train'' to ''Plane Bores'' and ''Bathroom Joggers'' to ''When Beckett met Binchy'', these articles have all the warmth, wit and humanity of her fiction. Arranged in decades, from the 1960s to the 2000s, and including Maeve''s first and last ever piece of writing for the Irish Times, the columns also give a fascinating insight into the author herself.

With an introduction written by her husband, the writer Gordon Snell, this collection of timeless writing reminds us of why the leading Irish writer was so universally loved.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Maeve Wonderful to have more Maeve to read - she was a joy and a gift to all of us who loved her books - this new one with her articles from the Irish Times is a great read - delighted her husband thought to do this - it is so sad to know that we cannot look forward to the next story from Maeve

Editorial Reviews

Maeve had this marvellously black sense of humour and she was wildly funny and entertaining
