Reviews

[Alan Bennett] is a prose stylist of disarming grace and humor. "The New York Times Book Review" Bennett's genius is for the imploding situation in which a cleverly made house of cards shudders and comes down; the comments of his characters as they nimbly pick their way around the wreckage verge on aphorism. "The New Yorker" In the hands of Alan Bennett, the tragic and painful are close bedfellows with the funny and the sexual, making for a collection of stories in which we laugh at the situations presented and then feel a twinge of guilt. "Los Angeles Times""
