From the Publisher
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.
