Publisher's Summary

Alan Bennett's brand new short story, published in the London Review of Books in May 2001 and then by Profile Books in September, is read here by the author.

Clive has died young, in Peru and in cirucumstances which make some of his many friends uneasy. The congregation gathered for his memorial service is unexpectedly distinguished; amongst the well-known faces and household names are pop stars, actors, politicians, and even members of the government.

So how come they all knew Clive, and why does his death make so many of them anxious?

It's only when Clive's friends in the congreation begin to stand up and share their memories of the dead man that a number of uncomfortable truths are revealed.
