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. “Binchy’s wry, self-effacing style reminds one of a Celtic Nora Ephron. . . . [She] throws a spotlight on strong, imperfect women confronting complicated challenges.” —The Christian Science Monitor

A Vintage Shorts “Short Story Month” Original Selection They hadn’t intended it to be a full house. Dee and Liam had thought that their children would leave home one by one and come to see them on weekends. Wouldn’t that be nice? But Helen had never left; Rosie got married but not for long; Anthony writes songs and will be a sensation someday. And Dee wonders what she did wrong. Instead of enjoying her “old age,” she is taking care of everyone else. When a crisis occurs Dee takes charge and decides that something has to change—much to everyone’s surprise. Beloved storyteller and internationally bestselling author Maeve Binchy left a treasure trove of unpublished short stories after her death. “Full House” is everything we’ve come to expect from Binchy’s work—a world of charm, joy and sorrow, where we return again and again to be instructed and warmed. She received a Lifetime Achievement Award at the British Book Awards in 1999 and the Irish PEN/A.T. Cross Award in 2007 and is the author of many bestselling books including Maeve’s Times, Chestnut Street, and A Week in Winter. An eBook short.

Born in Dublin in 1917 ro politically active parents, Maeve Brennan's childhood in Ireland was moulded by the cultural ideologies of nationalism and lit by the creative energy of the Abbey and Gate theatres. She was seventeen when her father was appointed to the Irish Legation in Washington DC, where he was the Irish minister throughout WWII. Maeve worked writing fashion copy at Harper's Bazaar until 1949, when William Shawn invited her to joine the New Yorker. Tiny, impeccably groomed, and devestatingly witty, in William Maxwell's words, 'to be around her was to see style invented'. She wrote important fiction, criticism and Talk of the Town pieces for the New Yorker magazine throughout its most influential period in the 1950's and 60's, focusing on memory, migration and identity; her material and women's lives. Had she been black, the political dimensions of her writing, which Angela Bourke explores in this richly researched, wide-ranging study, would undoubtedly have been noted before now. As it is, Maeve Brennan's effect on the people who met her, her eye for human behaviour, clothing and domestic settings, her unsparing reading of literature, her memory of home and her courageous life as a woman alone in metropolitan America make her an icon of the twentieth century.
