Publisher's Summary

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.

Maeve Binchy is well known for her best-selling novels, the most recent of which was A Week in Winter. But for many years Maeve was a journalist, writing for The Irish Times. From 'The Student Train' to 'Plane Bores', 'Bathroom Joggers' to 'When Beckett met Binchy', these articles have all the warmth, wit and humanity of her fiction. Arranged in decades, from the 1960s to the 2000s, and including Maeve's first and last ever piece of writing for The Irish Times, the columns also give a fascinating insight into the author herself.

With an introduction written by her husband, the writer Gordon Snell, this collection of timeless writing reminds us of why the leading Irish writer was so universally loved.

Read by Kate Binchy.

    "An emotional goodbye"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, absolutely. I love Maeve Binchy's novels and short stories. I hadn't read any of her journalistic work, but it was like a collection of her short stories. They were funny, sad and heartwarming. After listening to my collection repeatedly over the years, I feel like I know Kate Binchy. She is a wonderful voice for her cousin's writing.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Maeve's Times?

    I loved hearing about Maeve and Gordon's cameo appearance in one of the films. They were so excited so I was too! And I must remember SINBAD to tell my sister.


    What about Kate Binchy’s performance did you like?

    Familiarity of her voice and the way she brings the characters to life.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Laugh and cry... I feel very sad to have finished it, knowing that there won't be anymore.

    "Highly Recommend"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Maeve's Times to be better than the print version?

    Of course. Maeve's own daughter narrates and does a lovely job in the telling of the little stories.


    Any additional comments?

    Thoroughly enjoyed this listen. It made me laugh out loud at times and at the same time deeply sad for the loss of the wonderful lady that was Maeve Binchy.

    I am a big fan of Maeve's books and saddened that there will be no more. I wasn't sure I would enjoy this offering as much as her novels but love it, love it, love it making me laugh out loud in parts.
