Four Stories

by Alan Bennett - £8.99  Profile Books (2006)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781861978196 | ISBN 10: 1861978197

Brought together here for the first time, Alan Bennett's four hugely admired short stories are playful, perceptive and immensely funny. All are modern classics.

  • The Laying on of Hands - The painfully observant account of a memorial service for a masseur to the famous.
  • The Clothes They Stood Up In - The comic tale of a couple's trials after their flat is stripped completely bare.
  • Father! Father! Burning Bright - The savage satire on the family of a dying man who rules over them from his hospital bed.
  • The Lady in the Van - The true story of the eccentric old woman who is invited to live in a homeowner's front garden. She stays there, in her van, for fifteen years. The home is Alan Bennett's.
