Description
Tony Award–winning playwright Alan Bennett, author of The Uncommon Reader, here offers a poignant memoir of his parents' marriage, recalling the lost world of his childhood and the lives, loves, and deaths of his unforgettable aunties, Kathleen and Myra. First published in his collection Untold Stories, this intimate family portrait captures the Bennetts' hopes, disappointments, and yearning for a life like other people's. With the sudden descent of his mother into depression, and later dementia, Bennett uncovers and captures in his trademark style—moving yet irresistibly funny—a long-held family secret.

"[Alan Bennett's] writing about his family is utterly absorbing; entirely charitable, but in no way sentimental…. This is art of no mean order, though subtly concealed."—The Observer (London)
