A joy to listen to

Alan Bennett is a National treasure and I hope he goes on writing plays and stories for ever. He has a real insight into what we humans are all about and conveys it thoughtfully.
The actors taking part in this audiobook played their parts extremely well and with clarity. Particularly touching was the author's homage to the late and much missed Thora Hird.
Listen to all the plays as they all have something different to offer. A real treat

The greatest living playwright.

Sentiment without sentimentality, wit without smartaleckary. Mr Bennett is a master of turning the commonplace into the fascinating.
