A society hostess invites her husband’s mistress to dinner. A country girl savours the delights of city life. A student faces the dilemma of unmarried pregnancy. A drink-ridden photographer tries to relaunch a shattered career.

Dublin 4 has all of Maeve Binchy’s intimate grasp of human feelings, her marvellous ear for dialogue and her subtle sense of life’s confusion. The stories bubble with fun and wit — yet sometimes leave a taste of sadness.
Her warmth, compassion, and uncanny insight have earned Maeve Binchy loyal fans all over the world. Tara Road is the poignant story of a woman who reinvents her life and finds herself — it's Binchy at her haunting, compelling best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from story collection Dublin 4 is a novella also, consisting of 4 stories of people in Dublin. It underscores the drama in the mundane of everyone's life everywhere. This collection underscores that everyone has a story and that there is something unique and special in what is ordinary for each one. Interesting that in each of her novellas none of the lives have a definite conclusion; however, non seem to be lacking as a result.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweet stories MB's knack for people is just uncanny. She can write so well, it make it seem like these things really happened. You get the feeling you are being given the scoop by a knowing aunt or cousin. Read this sweet little book.
