    DescriptionAlan Bennett's "A Life Like Other People's" is a poignant family memoir offering a portrait of his parents' marriage and recalling his Leeds childhood, Christmases with Grandma Peel, and the lives, loves and deaths of his unforgettable aunties Kathleen and Myra. Bennett's powerful account of his mother's descent into depression and later dementia comes hand in hand with the uncovering of a long-held tragic secret. This is a heartrending and at times irresistibly funny work of autobiography by one of the best-loved English writers alive today.
