A new collection of stories previously unpublished in the United States by beloved and best-selling author Maeve Binchy
Maeve Binchy’s best-selling novels not only tell wonderful stories, they also show that while times change, people often remain the same: they fall in love, sometimes unsuitably; they have hopes and dreams; they have deep, long-standing friendships, and others that fall apart. From her earliest writing to her most recent, Maeve’s work has included wonderfully nostalgic pieces and also sharp, often witty writing that 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 humor that has always been essentially Maeve.
In order to review as many books as possible without stressing myself out, these super mini- tweet style reviews are going to help balance my usual review style. I love reviewing books, but sometimes writing a long review is daunting, and then I end up not reviewing the many, many books I’ve read. All my Short and Tweet reviews will be 140 characters or less (except when they are a bit longer). Thanks to Tif from Tif Talks Books for the idea!
I miss Maeve Binchy, so I was thrilled to get a collection of short stories, mostly all new to me. She had such a gift for short stories- somehow creating complex characters in a few pages. It made me want to read all her books from the very beginning.
