Welcome to The Maeve Binchy Season 2021 - Maeve speaking to Myles Dungan in the NCH
In 2002 Maeve decided to channel her inner Sinatra and, after two years of retirement, emerged triumphantly in this public interview with Myles Dungan. The occasion was the publication of "Quentins", and Myles subsequently described it as "the easiest five bob I ever earned". In a comic storytelling masterclass, Maeve talked openly and hilariously about how she started writing, where she gleaned her stories and ideas, and how she will never forget that Veal Casserole!
