Always loved his style which is modest and unassuming on the surface but what depth below, the book is now well known for "The lady in the van" but it's all a perfect gem.
My daughter who was doing an English degree thought his essay on Russell Harty was one of the best pice of writing written in the last Century.
If Bennets persona is phoney I don't care he can in my opinion do little little wrong.
Any one reading this book should also read "Untold Stories" possibly a look at the real Bennet.
If you are a fan of Alan Bennett's wry observations and enjoy reading works which make you repeatedly smile, and in my case agree with, then this book is for you.
