Out in paperback on September 7.

WHEN Alan Bennett's Untold Stories came out in hardback last year, the main complaint was that, at 672 pages, it was too short. This new paperback version, of course, doesn't solve that dilemma, but what it does do, is give you a more easily transportable copy of the great man's works. Untold Stories is a collection of Bennett's writing from the past 10 years and starts with a poignant memoir of his family and growing up in Leeds. It also contains his diaries for the years from 1996 until 2004 and a typically humble account of his cancer, from which he was lucky to survive. And if you do nothing else and have never read any Alan Bennett, buy the book and read Lady In The Van and The Madness Of George III and see what all the fuss is about.
