Description from Amazon:

"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."

I haven't read enough of this to rate it or to leave a complete review, but I did dip into it over the course of several months reading a few columns at a time. I read all the entries for the 1960s and about half of those for the 1970s and found them interesting. I wasn't always familiar with the events being referenced, but Binchy did a good job of providing sufficient background, I think.
