Darker and more intense than the first collection, these six stories uncover the secrets behind ordinary suburban lives.
From Patricia Routledge's Miss Fozzard, whose new chiropodist turns out to be rather peculiar, to Eileen Atkins' portryal of an antiques dealer who lets a masterpiece slip through her fingers, the characters come alive through Bennett's writing. These tales of desperation and loneliness are handled with the lightness of touch, compassion and shrewdly observed detail that have made Alan Bennett one of the country's best-loved writers.
The stories included are: 'Miss Fozzard Finds Her Feet' read by Patricia Routledge; 'The Hand of God' read by Eileen Atkins; 'Playing Sandwiches' read by David Haig; 'The Outside Dog' read by Julie Walters; 'Nights in the Gardens of Spain' read by Penelope Wilton and 'Waiting for the Telegram' read by Thora Hird. 3 CDs. 3 hrs 22 mins.
