Untold Stories by Alan Bennett (February 2017)

Untold Stories by Alan Bennett (February 2017)Reviewed on Wireless Books Otago Access Radio 105.4FM 18 February 2017 also on podcast

Alan Bennett's first collection of prose since Writing Home takes in all his major writings over the last ten years.

The title piece is a poignant family memoir with an account of the marriage of his parents, the lives and deaths of his aunts and the uncovering of a long-held family secret.  Also included are his much celebrated diaries for the years 1996 to 2004.  At times heart-rending and at others extremely funny.  Untold Stories is a matchless and unforgettable anthology.
