4.0 out of 5 stars Dated but fascinating analysis of Bennett 30 Jun 2013
By David Cuthbert - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Playwright-actor-essayist Alan Bennett is one of the treasures of the British literary world. This book shows how many of his Northern England characters (including those in his famous TV monologues "Talking Heads"), arose from his own life and observations of his family.

It goes no farther than "The Lady in the Van" ("The History Boys" is not mentioned) and so is dated, but it's fascinating to see how this writer works: from diary entries, to stories to the stage and film.

The used copy I received as in Very Good condition.
