Synopsis

This is the fourth recording from 'Untold Stories', containing 'A Common Assault', 'The History Boys' and 'Arise, Sir...' 'Untold Stories', Alan Bennett's first major collection of prose since his bestselling 'Writing Home', brings together the finest and funniest of his writing over the last ten years. After 'Untold Stories: Part 1: Stories', 'Part 2: The Diaries' and 'Part 3: Written on the Body', 'Part 4: A Common Assault' contains two more reminiscences from Bennett's life and an essay on the class system. 'A Common Assault' describes an incident in Italy when he was mugged, and found himself trying to give a statement to the police in bad Italian. 'The History Boys' harks back once more to Bennett's time at school, and shows how the raw material of experience was eventually transformed into the highly-acclaimed stage play 'The History Boys'. 'Arise, Sir...', finishes on a light-hearted note, in which Bennett muses on the Honours List in typically iconoclastic mode.
