Six more monologues from Britain's foremost writer delivered by the nation's favorite performers.

In these six new pieces Alan Bennett retains the gripping stories, intensity of delivery, and masterly style of his original monologues. The suburban normality of the world his characters inhabit once again belies their lives of secrets, revelations, fears, crimes, and passions. They tell their stories, and in doing so reveal more than they know of the humour, passion, and sadness of their lives.

Alongside the original pieces, these superb monologues form one of the great contributions to television drama.

Included in this collection are:

  • Miss Fozzard Finds her Feet, with Patricia Routledge
  • The Hand of God, with Eileen Atkins
  • Playing Sandwiches, with David Haig
  • The Outside Dog, with Julie Walters
  • Nights in the Gardens of Spain, with Penelope Wilton
  • Waiting for the Telegram, with Thora Hird Download and start listening now!

      " Follow up to the original Talking Heads which I also read this month. Once again very well written and as Bennett himself says more miserable then the original! "

      " Some good short monologues in here but in general the quality is not as good as the first Talking heads book. The endings of the stories in this volume are a bit abrupt and doesn't tie the stories up as well as its predessor. "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Neil | 6/3/2010

      " I loved this collection of monologues told from the perspective of some very eccentric British characters. Bennett is a magnificent story-teller. "

      " The Complete "Talking Heads" by Alan Bennett (2001) "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nushin | 12/11/2009

      " In Bennetts talking heads, hilarity and glum go perfectly well. "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cecily | 5/30/2008

      " Thirteen sad monologues, all with a twist. More happens in what is unsaid than what is said. Not a good idea to read too many in one sitting - moreish as they are - otherwise they meld a little too much. "
