Thicker than water : coming-of-age stories by Irish and Irish American writers( Book )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Twelve remarkable coming of age stories capture both the "old", beguiling Ireland and its new energy today. Stories tell of a love so strong it makes the stars shine in daylight; how Catholic and Protestant hostilities burn away a new romance; the hidden longing of a past summer; a waitressing job in Texas that offers a glimpse of the harsh "dream" of immigrant life. In Emma Donoghue's title story, Mammy's second wedding brings out the bloody truth between sisters. Maeve Binchy and Ita Daly tell of old secrets cast off at last, and Chris Lynch shows how a young couple's journey to an abortion clinic in Liverpool leads to a painful awakening of deepest feelings

A few of the girls by Maeve Binchy( Book )

6 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'A few of the girls' is a glorious collection of Maeve Binchy's best stories. They're full of the warmth, charm and humour that has always been an essential part of her writing. Maeve's novels not only tell wonderful stories, they also give an insight in to how Ireland has changed over the decades, but how people remain the same: they still fall in love, sometimes unsuitably; they still have hopes and dreams; they have deep, long-standing friendships, and some that fall apart. Maeve's work has included wonderfully nostalgic pieces and also sharp, often witty writing which is insightful and topical

Thicker than water : Irish stories( Book )

4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An outstanding collection of twelve coming-of-age stories by Irish and Irish-American writers. Maeve Binchy's 'When Grania Grows Up' pinpoints the moment a girl who believed in happy families loses her innocent faith in people; Marita Conlon-McKenna writes of a teenage romance that triggers hostilities between Catholics and Protestants; the title story by Shane Connaughton deals with macabre humour with a teenage boy rumoured to have committed a murder; and Helena Mullkerns' 'Landlocked' is about an Irish girl waitressing in Texas and beginning to understand the complex dream of immigrant life. The authors include some exciting newcomers, some top Irish children's writers, and some established adult writers who have never written for young people before. In their very different ways each succeeds brilliantly in conveying the universal longing of the young to grow up, to love, and to start a new life

Maeve's times : in her own words by Maeve Binchy( Recording )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Maeve Binchy once confessed: "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." She was an accidental journalist, yet from the beginning, her writings reflected the warmth, wit, and keen human interest that readers would come to love in her fiction. From the royal wedding to boring airplane companions, Samuel Beckett to Margaret Thatcher, "senior moments" to life as a waitress, Maeve's Times gives us wonderful insight into a changing Ireland as it celebrates the work of one of our best-loved writers in all its diversity-revealing her characteristic directness, laugh-out-loud humor, and unswerving gaze into the true heart of a matter"--
