2 Talking Heads By Alan Bennett
Alan Bennett is something of an institution in Britain, known for the way in which he can encapsulate a world of voices within a single monologue.Bennett sealed his reputation as the master of observation with Talking Heads his series of 12 ground-breaking monologues. Darkly comic, tragically poignant and wonderfully uplifting the series is widely regarded as a modern classic.A Lady of LettersIn A Lady of Letters , Miss Ruddocks civil liberties are dear to her, and writing letters is how she likes to assert those rights. One of these missives pushes her to the brink, with unexpected, but liberating consequences.Bed Among the LentilsBed Among the Lentils features Susan, an alcoholic, nervous vicars wife who has to travel into Leeds to go to the off-licence because of her debts with the local shop keeper, distracts herself from her ambitious, and, as she sees him, vainly insensitive husband and his doting parishioners by conducting an affair with a nearby grocer, Ramesh, discovering something about herself and God in the process.
