Publisher's Summary

Untold Stories, Alan Bennett's first major collection of prose since his best-selling Writing Home, brings together the finest and funniest of his writing over the last 10 years. Two recordings feature selected material from Untold Stories:

Part 1: Stories contains the title piece, and Part 2: The Diaries covers Alan Bennett's much-celebrated diaries for 1997-2004. Stories is a poignant family memoir recalling the marriage of Alan's parents, the lives and deaths of his aunts, and the uncovering of a long-held family secret. At times heartrending, and at others extremely funny, Untold Stories is a matchless and unforgettable journey into Alan Bennett's past.

    Alan Bennet's voice is so perfect


    What other book might you compare Alan Bennett to, and why?

    Alan Bennet can't be compared to anyone really - he has his own unique style, blending humour with pathos and quiet social comment.


    What does Alan Bennett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    He has such a unique way of looking at life, particularly with regard to his mother's depression and his father's way of coping - but don't be put off, there are many humorous anecdotes throughout.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Quiet humour, silent tears.


    Any additional comments?

    Everyone should read one Alan Bennett book to enrich their lives.
