Illustrated with black and white photographs.
From the cover: Bringing together the hilarious, revealing, and lucidly intelligent writing of one of Englands best known literary figures, Writing Home includes the journalism, book and theater reviews, and diaries of Alan Bennett, as well as The Lady in the Van, his unforgettable account of Miss Shepherd, a London eccentric who lived in a van in Bennetts garden for more than twenty years. This revised and updated edition includes new material from the author, including more recent diaries and his introduction to his Oscar-nominated screenplay for The Madness of King George. A chronicle of one of the most important literary careers of the twentieth century, Writing Home is a classic history of a life in letters.
