Four Stories

by Alan Bennett
£8.99   paperback  Profile Books (2006)

Four Stories by Alan Bennett 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.
