'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.

'Part 1: Stories': 'Untold Stories' is a poignant family memoir recalling the marriage of Alan's parents, the lives and deaths of his aunts and the uncovering of a long-held family secret. At times heartrending, and at others extremely funny, 'Untold Stories' is a matchless and unforgettable journey into Alan Bennett's past.
