Five decades of selected writings from the Irish Times by the beloved and best-selling author, filled with her hallmark humor, candor, and wisdom-a timeless gift to her legion of fans. 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. “Binchy’s wry, self-effacing style reminds one of a Celtic Nora Ephron. . . . [She] throws a spotlight on strong, imperfect women confronting complicated challenges.” —The Christian Science Monitor

The importance of being able to read for meaning should never be underestimated. The ability to decode text is not enough. It is vital that children understand what they are reading. More importantly, it is fundamental that they enjoy what they are reading, so that they grow up to become lifelong readers. The passages in the Brilliant Activities for Reading Comprehension series are designed to do just that. They provide children with a variety of engaging, enjoyable texts that will grab their attention, and indeed their teacher's attention as well. The types of comprehension passages range from newspaper articles and dialogues, to plays, stories and poems. They gradually increase in difficulty as you progress though the book, and through the series, encouraging children to develop their ability to read for meaning and use a range of strategies to engage with the text. Tasks range from simple factual recall and vocabulary work to more open-ended questions enabling the reader to provide a more personal response. The cross-curricular activities provide a wealth of ideas for extending the passages further and are ideal for fast-finishers.

...continue the journey with Beth, Sam, Flora and Maeve as they continue the search for Sybille who mysteriously vanished 18 months ago... ...Arianwen speaks of Magicks and the land ...Magick feeds the land and the land feeds our Magicks,’ she sang. ‘Humankin have forgotten to believe and so our power diminishes, as too will the essence of the Mother. Soon they will wonder why their earth realm is suffering dire change and in turn so must they. Change or die; like us disappear into the threads beyond time. This realm will only be inhabited by those who appreciate their own powers of co-creation with the Mother and with us and who have the ability to project in all directions to restore the earth plane they believe is reality. It is only one among many but which will they chose as their truth; one with anger, revenge, regret, fear and deceit or a planet where light and the Mother’s Magicks return to empower the land again,’ and the tears of the small creature dried and the Maker was gone. ...she was otter, dragonfly, leaf sprite, a breath of air, a droplet of water vapour, a tidal pool of emotion. She knew no differentiation between herself and all that is for she was ...all that is... ...the journey continues...

Maeve Devereux, the ornament of opera houses from New York to St. Petersburg, is brilliant onstage, beautiful in person, and generous to a fault. But inside the diva is the seventeen-year-old who helped stage a prison breakout at seventeen during the Boer War, escaped to Europe with her mother and the mysterious Sean Farrell, and transformed herself from country girl to music hall star to diva. Not to be outdone by her lovely daughter, Maeve's gorgeous mother, Moira, starts her own career as a collector of men's hearts and a popular guest at country house weekends and Parisian evenings. Moira's marriage to the American millionaire Charlie Lassiter foreshadows Maeve's to Baron Dietrich von Reuter, the young German who loves her with ruthless devotion. As Europe parties on the eve of World War One, scandals shake society, war breaks out in the Balkans, Moira's past comes back to hurt her, Dietrich shatters under the strain of bankruptcy, and Sean Farrell proves to be the one man Maeve can rely on come scandal, heartbreak, or war. From Parisian dalliances to Balkan intrigues, Maeve's story is a tale of glittering pre-war Europe teetering on the edge of the volcano. PRAISE: "The backdrops are voluptuous, the villains dastardly, the beauties full of fire...an entertaining saga...with a winning heart." —Publishers Weekly

Born in Dublin in 1917 ro politically active parents, Maeve Brennan's childhood in Ireland was moulded by the cultural ideologies of nationalism and lit by the creative energy of the Abbey and Gate theatres. She was seventeen when her father was appointed to the Irish Legation in Washington DC, where he was the Irish minister throughout WWII. Maeve worked writing fashion copy at Harper's Bazaar until 1949, when William Shawn invited her to joine the New Yorker. Tiny, impeccably groomed, and devestatingly witty, in William Maxwell's words, 'to be around her was to see style invented'. She wrote important fiction, criticism and Talk of the Town pieces for the New Yorker magazine throughout its most influential period in the 1950's and 60's, focusing on memory, migration and identity; her material and women's lives. Had she been black, the political dimensions of her writing, which Angela Bourke explores in this richly researched, wide-ranging study, would undoubtedly have been noted before now. As it is, Maeve Brennan's effect on the people who met her, her eye for human behaviour, clothing and domestic settings, her unsparing reading of literature, her memory of home and her courageous life as a woman alone in metropolitan America make her an icon of the twentieth century.
