I usually listen to fiction so this was a new and really good experience for me.
Kenneth Williams diaries as they both share a dry and waspish sense of humour!
Hearing Alan's words in his own voice is priceless. I can't get his voice out of my head!
I've listened to this twice so far and definitely missed some nuances first time around. Both times I listened were in one sitting. Highly recommended!
Looking forward to listening to the next instalment.
Alan Bennett: excellent writer; excellent narrator
Funny, intelligent, wry.
Bennett is an excellent narrator of his own work. The deadpan northern accent adds to the humour.
Being a diary, there was no plotting, but the "story" was engaging throughout.
