    Story
    "Alan Bennett: excellent writer; excellent narrator"
    If you could sum up Alan Bennett in three words, what would they be?

    Funny, intelligent, wry.


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

    Bennett is an excellent narrator of his own work. The deadpan northern accent adds to the humour.


    Any additional comments?

    Being a diary, there was no plotting, but the "story" was engaging throughout.

    "Another excellent Alan Bennett read."

    Alan Bennet has a very dry and witty throw away style which never fails to amuse in a gentle, wry kind of way.
