Irish writer, Maeve Binchy died at age 72. I am going to miss those books that won't be written. She was the queen of the intelligent feel-good book. In fact, I spent all day yesterday reading MINDING FRANKIE after finishing THE WIND-UP BIRD CHRONICLES.
I especially liked TARA ROAD, SCARLET FEATHER and QUENTINS. Some of those characters showed up briefly in FRANKIE for a funeral. They are old friends. I'm sorry I never wrote her a note to tell her how happy she made me. Rest in peace, dear Ms. Binchy.
