A collection of the writing series 'A Page in the Life', which ran on the Marian Finucane Show, is published today.

The segment ran on the Marian Finucane Show between 2004 and 2005 and features true stories from 54 writers throughout Ireland.

The stories have been gathered together in book form for the first time and offer a snapshot of contemporary Ireland.

Royalties from sales of 'A Page in the Life' will go to the Irish Hospice Foundation.
