A wonderfully entertaining collection of Alan Bennett's prose writings. Bringing together his diaries for 1980-1995, and the journal he kept during the production of Forty Years On, which starred John Gielgud, the book also includes accounts of his many television plays and, at its heart, The Lady in the Van, the true account of Miss Mary Shepherd, a homeless tramp who took up residence in Bennett's garden and stayed for fifteen years. From his now-legendary address at Russell Harty's memorial service, to recollections of growing up in Leeds, Writing Home gives us an unforgettable portrait of one of England's leading playwrights.
