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.

Masterpiece by a Master writer
Alan Bennet's voice is so perfect
Alan Bennet can't be compared to anyone really - he has his own unique style, blending humour with pathos and quiet social comment.
He has such a unique way of looking at life, particularly with regard to his mother's depression and his father's way of coping - but don't be put off, there are many humorous anecdotes throughout.
Quiet humour, silent tears.
Everyone should read one Alan Bennett book to enrich their lives.
- Sue McW
Bennett at his best.
