The Lady in the Van, Paperback / softback Book

The Lady in the Van Paperback / softback


Alan Bennett is the author of Writing Home, The Madness of George III, Talking Heads, The Clothes They Stood Up In and much else besides.

Miss Shepherd lived in a Robin Reliant opposite Bennett's house in Camden Town.

After a series of attacks on her van, he suggested she move, with her van, to his front drive.

Initially reluctant, she agreed - and Bennett landed himself a tenancy that went on for fifteen years.

The Lady in the Van is probably Alan Bennett's best-known work of non-fiction, and follows his other little blockbuster The Clothes They Stood Up In.
