"Untold Stories" is Alan Bennett's first collection of prose since "Writing Home" and takes in all his major writings over the last ten years. The title piece is a poignant family memoir with an account of the marriage of his parents, the lives and deaths of his aunts and the uncovering of a long-held family secret. Also included are his much celebrated diaries for the years 1996 to 2004, as well as essays, reviews, lectures and reminiscences ranging from childhood trips to the local cinema and a tour around Leeds Art Gallery to reflections on writing, honours and his Westminster Abbey eulogy for Thora Hird. At times heartrending and at others extremely funny, "Untold Stories" is a matchless and unforgettable anthology.

    Comprende:
    - Untold Stories (più che la vita, la morte del padre, della madre e di una zia per demenza senile, di un'altra zia per polmonite)
    - Written on the Body (tradotto in italiano: roba tipo essere adolescente, gay e vergine a Leeds negli anno Cinquanta)
    - Diaries 1996-2004 (tante visite di chiesette campagnole, tanti funerali, tanto furore per l'impegno britannico nella guerra dell'Irak e cose così)
    - Going to the Pictures e Spoiled for Choice (tradotte in italiano, son visite guidate a capolavori pittorici soprattutto. Gustosissima la presa per il c u l o di Berenson)
    -Ups and Downs (dove primeggia la storia del suo cancro al colon, ma non per me. Per me primeggia A Common Assault, ovvero come Bennett e un amico sono stati oggetto di un'aggressione a Ladispoli che oggi si definirebbe omofoba: vergogna totale. Lo tradurranno mai? Mah).
