Announcing Maeve Binchy’s A Few of the Girls

More than forty of Maeve Binchy’s short stories will be brought together for the very first time in A Few of the Girls, a new collection out on 24th September.

A Few of the Girls is out in hardback, ebook and audio on 24th September.

Maeve’s bestselling novels not only tell wonderful stories, they reveal 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.

A Few of the Girls is a glorious collection full of the warmth, charm and humour that has always been an essential part of Maeve’s writing.
