Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin


Maeve Binchy died in July 2012.

Maeve was as celebrated for her short fiction as for her novels and journalism and over many years she chose to set some of her stories in the same fictional location. Chestnut Street is the collection of stories she'd been writing for several years and gives us a portrait of a changing city written with all Maeve's characteristic warmth and humour. With an introduction by her husband, Gordon Snell.

I'd like people to think I was a good friend and a reasonable story-teller and to know that thanks to all the great people, family and friends that I met, I was very, very happy when I was here.
