From Maeve Binchy's earliest writings to her last, her sharp, often witty voice is filled with insight, wisdom, and common sense. This treasury collects some of the very best of her short story writing, written over the decades. Whether published in magazines, for friends as gifts, or for charity benefits, they are filled with Binchy's warmth and humor.
"A short story by Binchy is immediately recognizable for its blessed brevity, swift pace, poignant wit and unfailingly wise and gentle psychology. This posthumously published collection gathers 36 stories from various nooks in Binchy's writing life.... Honestly, every one is marvelous.... A Few of the Girls is a string of gems, and, despite its title, it is not just fiction for women, any more than it is just a book for Irish and English readers."—Minneapolis Star Tribune
