An absolute must. Bennett has created such wonderful characters, all of which can be related to by the listener. So easy to place ones imagination into the individuals. Bennett has a wonderful speaking voice easy listening. Has the ability to evoke the listeners every emotion to associate with the characters and their circumstances. Not exceptional funny but listened to with a constant smile on ones face.

Alan Bennett's superb short stories offer amusing and thought-provoking listening. As a writer, he is a master of English prose. As a reader, once you adjust to his English Midlands accent and high-pitched voice, he is an excellent interpreter of his own work. The four stories included here provide an excellent introduction to his writing or a wonderful way to complete your collection. As always he creates more memorable moments in a story than most novelists do in books ten times the length.

Incredible twists in each plot that left me in awe of his writing and coupled with his laconic reading, this is one of Audible's treasures.
