A fine first edition, with some light foxing to the top edge of the page block and several spots of foxing to the bottom of the page block. In a near-fine price-clipped dust jacket, with two small red penmarks to the front cover, and several small dark marks to back/spine.
Alan Bennett's A Life Like Other People's is a poignant family memoir offering a portrait of his parents' marriage and recalling his Leeds childhood, Christmases with Grandma Peel, and the lives, loves and deaths of his unforgettable aunties Kathleen and Myra. Bennett's powerful account of his mother's descent into depression and later dementia comes hand in hand with the uncovering of a long-held tragic secret. A heartrending and at times irresistibly funny work of autobiography by one of the best-loved English writers alive today.
