Product Description

Publisher: Faber & Faber

Author: Alan Bennett

Alan Bennett's A Life Like Other People’s is the core of his collection, Untold Stories. It is a poignant memoir of his parents’ marriage and his own childhood, recalling Christmases with Grandma Peel and the lives, loves and deaths of his unforgettable aunties, Kathleen and Myra. With the sudden descent of his mother into depression and, later, dementia, a long-held family secret is uncovered in this heart-rending and at times irresistibly funny work of autobiography by one of the best-loved English writers.
