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.

Maeve B has not been my regular 'go to' author although I've enjoyed most of her stories. This read is rather more interesting in that it's a more personal window onto her life I'd known nothing of. I liked her personal takes on several issues, some of which surely were not published at the time of event...like the time of Charles & Diana. The reader is sometimes difficult to understand (for me) due to pronunciation, volume of voice & speed. My MP3 device doesn't allow me to back up in small increments, unlike a CD would. I'm glad I chose this, as it turned out to be surprising in content.
