The Lady in the Van (Paperback)Alan Bennett (author)
Adapted by the author from his autobiographical memoir, The Lady in the Van tells the story of Miss Mary Shepherd, whom Alan Bennett first came across when she was living in the street near his home in Camden Town. Taking refuge with her van in his garden originally for three months, she ended up staying fifteen years. Funny, touching and unexpectedly spectacular, The Lady in the Van marked the return to the stage of one of our leading playwrights.
The Lady in the Van with Maggie Smith opened at the Queen's Theatre, London, in December 1999.

“On behalf of my wife”
Again am reviewing this book on behalf from my wife, she requested me to say this is a good book ,based on a true story and well worth the read.
Fascinating but at times uncomfortable account of Bennett's, shall we say guest. It's funny and tragic at times. It's a short read but worth it.
