Alan Bennett - Writing Home (2nd Hand Paperback)
This book brings together his diaries for 1980-1995, with reminiscences and reviews.
The diary he kept during the production of his very first play (Forty Years On, which starred John Gielgud) together with hilarious accounts of his many television plays, notably An Englishman Abroad and A Private Function.
At the heart of the book is The Lady in the Van, the true account of Miss Mary Shepherd, a homeless tramp who took up residence in Bennett's garden and stayed for fifteen years.
From his now-legendary address at Russell Harty's memorial service to recollections of growing up in Leeds, Writing Home gives us a unique and unforgettable portrait of one of England's leading playwrights.
