'Untold Stories', Alan Bennett's first major collection of prose since his bestselling 'Writing Home', brings together the finest and funniest of his writing over the last ten years. Following on from 'Untold Stories: Part 1: Stories' and 'Part 2: The Diaries', 'Part 3: Written on the Body' is both a reflection on Alan Bennett's childhood and schooldays and a meditation on writing. 'Written on the Body' is a sideways look at Bennett's schooldays at Leeds Modern School, and a recollection of the growing pains of puberty. 'Seeing Stars' is a nostalgic view of the movies of the Forties, seen by Bennett and his family in any one of the half a dozen cinemas in their district in Leeds, including the Western, the Clifton, the Picturedrome and the Lyric. Finally, 'Staring Out of the Window' lets us into Bennett's creative process, which apparently consists of a good deal of ...well...staring out of the window. 2 CDs. 2 hrs 28 more
