MAEVE BINCHY A Few of the Girls
A superb collection from the No. 1 bestselling author. Maeve Binchy’s multi-million-copy-selling novels not only tell wonderful stories – they also give an insight into how Ireland has changed over the decades, while its people remain the same: they still fall in love, sometimes unsuitably; they still have hopes and dreams; they have deep, longstanding friendships, and some that fall apart. From her earliest writing to her most recent, Maeve’s work includes wonderfully nostalgic pieces and also sharp, often witty writing which is insightful and topical. But at the heart of all Maeve’s fiction are the people and their relationships with each other. A Few of the Girls is a glorious collection of the very best of her writing, full of the warmth, charm and humour that has always been an essential part of all of Maeve’s writing. Maeve Binchy wrote over twenty books, all of them bestsellers. She received a Lifetime Achievement Award at the British Book Awards in 1999 and in 2010 she was presented with the Bob Hughes Lifetime Achievement Award at the Bord Gais Irish Book Awards by the President of Ireland. She died in 2012.
