About this item

Before she was a bestselling novelist, Maeve Binchy started out as a columnist forThe Irish Times. Her articles—focused on the famous and the obscure alike—were filled with the warmth, wit, and keen human interest that readers would come to love in her fiction.From royal weddings to boring airplane companions, from Samuel Beckett to Margaret Thatcher, from life as a waitress to “senior moments,”Maeve’s Times gives us five decades of Binchy’s insight into a changing world—revealing her characteristic directness, laugh-out-loud humor, and unswerving gaze into the true heart of a matter.
Five decades of selected writings from the Irish Times by the beloved and best-selling author, filled with her hallmark humor, candor, and wisdom-a timeless gift to her legion of fans.

Maeve Binchy once confessed: "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." She was an accidental journalist, yet from the beginning, her writings reflected the warmth, wit, and keen human interest that readers would come to love in her fiction. From the royal wedding to boring airplane companions, Samuel Beckett to Margaret Thatcher, "senior moments" to life as a waitress, Maeve's Times gives us wonderful insight into a changing Ireland as it celebrates the work of one of our best-loved writers in all its diversity-revealing her characteristic directness, laugh-out-loud humor, and unswerving gaze into the true heart of a matter.
