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. Download and start listening now!


Listener Opinions

    " I like "Untold Stories" most of all; it's his poignant family memoir, as well as "A Room of My Own" (Have you read Virginai Woolf's "A Room of One's Own"?). In brief, his prose is readable and, I think, one can learn a lot of good English from him if he/she keeps reading him. "

    " The first section of the book was fine. Stories about his upbringing and his mother's battle with mental illness. Sadly the rest of the book made up by his diaries bored me me to tears. "

    " With his usual mixture of pathos and humour Alan Bennett returned with a follow-up to the hugely successful 'Writing Home'. This new book included more diary extracts, writings on the theatre, art, close friends and a touching memoir of his parents. Without doubt, the best book of 2005. "

    " I rate this book in two parts;first open, poignant and refreshingly honest but second he seems to be making points than illustrating them. Difficult to read but worth the effort, an insight to an amazing talent. "
