Untold Stories, Alan Bennett's first major collection of prose since his best-selling Writing Home, brings together the finest and funniest of his writing over the last 10 years. 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. They are an erudite collection of witty yet poignant recollections told in his own unique voice. Whether appreciating the simple pleasures of nature, or commenting on religion, politics or the arts, his observations are incisive, funny, and yet always meaningful.

Listening to Mr.Bennet himself relay his diaries is fabulous - the magic touch that brings audibles to perfect life. I'm glad he values us, the listeners, to narrate himself so we get the very best interpretation.
I enjoyed being able to share his life's ups and downs - finding the diaries highly amusing - especially the tales against himself.
