    PDF Telling Tales eBook ß ã escortgps.co telling epub, tales pdf, Telling Tales KindleOriginating as BBC TV monologues by the author himself you cannot read these without hearing his distinctive accent and delivery even without having heard them broadcast I love Bennett's plays and other monologues; his use of language and observational skills are second to none and while I really enjoyed this

    PDF Telling Tales eBook ß ã escortgps.co telling epub, tales pdf, Telling Tales KindleAs I hear Alan Bennett's voice in my head whenever I read his books it didn't seem too much of a leap to download an audio edition of this book I need something to distract me from the treadmill misery that is both January when I'm keen to exercise and Winter so the ground is covered in snow here in Idaho This created a problem Periodically I would have to step to the side of the treadmill clutching my side unable to breathe with laughter At other times I had to stop and let the tears course down my face This is Alan Bennett I don't know what it is about the man's writing that affects me so strongly aside from the fact that it's very good obviously These are people you know real people with real stories and I never tire of hearing them

    PDF Telling Tales eBook ß ã escortgps.co telling epub, tales pdf, Telling Tales KindleAlan Bennett award winning playwright writer actor etc remembers his childhood in Leeds Great BritainThese ten tales are perfect little wisps of remembrances delicate curls of chocolate on the cake of Bennett's other memoirs I've read his bigger autobiographical tome Untold Stories and I seem to remember some of the same incidents No matter Bennet is simply charming in his writings There's a slight melancholy throughout which is perfectly balanced by his sly wit I think my favourite is Aunt Eveline His description of her decollete is laugh out loud hilariousI give this only 4 stars because it's simply too short
