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 audiences 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.

A glimpse into the writer's memory.....
How wonderful it would be if all of our favorite authors took the time to share with us their favorite memories of their careers. It was delightful to listen to this trip back through the archives of MB's career highs and lows and points in between.

What a brilliant wit Meave Binchy is. She's such a woman of her times and so wonderfully Irish. You see the sexual revolution, women's liberation, even the drama of the Brittish royals through her unflinchingly honestly eyes.
