5.0 out of 5 stars National Treasure, 16 Nov. 2005
This review is from: Untold Stories (Hardcover)
As one discovers half way through, Bennett didn't think he had long to live when he was writing Untold Stories, which probably accounts for the especially intimate and personal reflection. There is comedy and sensitivity in some of the tragedy and the large diary section of the book is a terrific peek into AB's life. Peek being essential as it's a good place for dipping in and out from. It's a bit voyeuristic, but then Bennett is hinmself I think. It will grace your bookshelf and be read again and again.
