Alan Bennett reads his own diaries from two of his bestselling memoirs, "Writing Home" and "Untold Stories". Available for the first time in one collection are these two volumes: "Diaries 1980-1990" and "Untold Stories: The Diaries". "Diaries 1980-1990": the eighties were a busy time for Alan Bennett, playwright, actor and diarist. As well as troubles with theatre tours and critics, he also covers the major events of the time: the Falklands War, Mrs Thatcher and the murder of John Lennon. Taken from Alan Bennett's bestselling book, "Writing Home", this keenly viewed history of the decade confirms Bennett as one of life's great observers - clear-eyed, compassionate and funny. As heard on BBC Radio 4. "Untold Stories: The Diaries": Alan Bennett's diaries from "Untold Stories" covers the years 1997-2004 and are a collection of witty, yet poignant recollections. Whether appreciating the simple pleasures of nature, or commenting on religion, politics or the arts, his observations are incisive, amusing and yet always meaningful.
