Available for the first time in one collection are these two volumes: Diaries 1980-1990 and Untold Stories: The Diaries .

As well as troubles with theatre tours and critics, he also covers the major events of the time: the Falklands War, Mrs Thatcher and the murder of John Lennon. Taken from Alan Bennett's bestselling book, Writing Home , this keenly viewed history of the decade confirms Bennett as one of life's great observers - clear-eyed, compassionate and funny. As heard on BBC Radio 4. Untold Stories: The Diaries : Alan Bennett's diaries from Untold Stories covers the years 1997-2004 and are a collection of witty, yet poignant recollections.
