Quick Overview
"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." Remembered for such novels as Light a Penny Candle, Tara Road, and A Week in Winter, Maeve Binchy was also a columnist for the Irish Times. From "The Student Train" and "Plane Bores" to "Bathroom Joggers" and "When Beckett met Binchy," these articles span nearly 50 years, and not only display the same warmth, wit, and humanity of her fiction, but also offer fascinating insight into the author herself. "This selection of her work represents Binchy's eclectic interests, infectious sense of humor and wry take on social change.... A blithe, entertaining collection that will surely delight Binchy's many fans."-Kirkus Reviews

How we describe the condition of our books

We are very proud of the condition of the books we sell (please read our testimonials to find out more!)

New: Exactly as it says.

As New: Pretty much new but shows small signs of having been read; inside it will be clean without any inscriptions or stamps; might contain a remainder mark.

Very Good: Might have some creases on the spine; no hard cracks; maybe slight forward lean and short inscription inside; perhaps very minor bumping on the corners of the book; inside clean but the page edges might be slightly yellowed.

Good: A few creases on the spine, perhaps a forward lean, bumping on corners or shelfwear; maybe an inscription inside or some shelfwear or a small tear or two on the dustjacket; inside clean but page edges might be somewhat yellowed.

Fair: In overall good condition, might have a severe forward lean to the spine, an inscription, bumping to corners; one or two folds on the covers and yellowed pages; in exceptional cases these books might contain some library stamps and stickers or have neat sticky tape which was used to fix a short, closed tear.

Poor: We rarely sell poor condition books, unless the books are in demand and difficult to find in a better condition. Poor condition books are still perfect for a good read, all pages will be intact and none threatening to fall out; most probably a reading copy only.
