Maeve Binchy Summary

Maeve Binchy: A Reminiscence by Piers Dudgeon

Maeve Binchy's novels sold more than 40 million copies worldwide, and when she died on 30th July 2012, she did so as Ireland's best-loved writer. In books such as Circle of Friends, Tara Road and Scarlet Feather, no one else told stories like Maeve Binchy. Humane, down-to-earth, funny, her novels captured imaginations on both sides of the Atlantic in a way that most authors only dream of. Millions of her fans were disappointed when she announced in 2000 she was retiring - a false alarm - and now that she has passed away more will want something to remind them of her. More than a biography, this extraordinary book visits Maeve Binchy in the land of her birth, which is the environment of her novels, and in the company of the author and her fictional characters sets out to discover the emotional contours which define her as a writer and person.

Maeve Binchy Reviews

'Those who loved Maeve and her writing will be grateful that her life has been dutifully documented, and that she has formally taken her place in the canon of Irish literary - and media - life.' Mary Kenny, Irish Independent 'This joy of a biography is an absolute must for fans of the treasured Irish author, who died a year ago... A vivid portrait of a generous-hearted, funny and consummate storyteller.' Hello! "This book will be read with interest by many." Irish Catholic "Dudgeon paints Binchy as a lively and vivacious lover of life in this warm and often humorous record of a woman who was determined to be her own person." Irish Post "Biographer Dudgeon specialises in telling the stories of prolific matriarchal female writers." Yorkshire Post
