Book Description

24 Oct 2013
Dear Maeve is a collection of Maeve Binchy's articles from The Irish Times. Professor Anthony Clare on Dear Maeve: How do you tell someone that they've tucked their skirts into their knickers? Should you correct your wife when she says 'commodium' instead of 'condominium'? What should you do if your see your son-in-law nuzzling a woman, not your daughter, at a nearby lunch table? Maeve takes a subtle glance at the practical problems that confront us all - when, if ever, to put an elderly relative in a nursing home, how to avoid a Christmas argument that lasts an entire new year, just what to do for and say to a friend who is about to die. Behind the apparent ordinariness, the airy grace and the fluent style lies genuine wisdom. ALL ROYALTIES FROM THIS BOOK GO TO THE ARTHRITIS FOUNDATION OF IRELAND

4.0 out of 5 stars Good to dip into 30 Sep 2013
By Waxwing
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I like Maeve's informal style and these articles are as entertaining as all her other work. It's not gripping stuff but then it's not meant to be and I am still reading a little at a time. It's quite thought-provoking at times and her slant on human nature is always worth a look.

5.0 out of 5 stars DEAR MAEVE 5 July 2014
By bernie
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was rather different to the many books by the late great Maeve Binchy we have read, being not a work of fiction ( with which she excelled) but true stories about Maeve herself and her very interesting life. This is a facinating book and we all found it most enjoyable saddened by the knowledge that she is no longer creating her books.
