A new collection of Alan Bennett's diaries and more
Cleverer and funnier than any one person has a right to be ... inexhaustibly fascinating; Bennett has an eager, enquiring mind and a sharp way with words that can break your ideas open.
Is able to make the world dance with a single word ... On every page there is a phrase to make you smile, poetry disguised as comedy.
Few diarists could offer such a consistently funny and touching authorial voice as Bennett. Long may he keep on keeping on.
Wry and eloquent ... screamingly funny... his sentences are always beautiful.
There is no other writer, certainly none from any other era or nation, quite like Alan Bennett, and having this much more of his work is an uncovenanted blessing.
