BBC Radio Collection, Alan Bennett, The Clothes They Stood Up In
Alan Bennett reads his highly acclaimed story; A quirky, wry and ironic tale from one of life's great observers.
'We come to the wonderful world of Alan Bennett, deliciously enriched by the voice of the master himself. 'The Sunday Times The Ransomes had been burgled. 'Robbed, ' Mrs Ransome said. 'Burgled, ' Mr Ransome corrected. Premises were burgled; persons were robbed. Mr Ransome was a solicitor by profession and thought words mattered. The fact is that the Ransomes have been cleaned out. Everything has gone, even the toilet paper, and for the stuffy solicitor and his downtrodden wife it marks a turning point, a kind of liberation. Nothing will ever be quite the same, even when their possessions mysteriously turn up again, exactly as they left them... Sad and funny, poignant and perceptive, this is Bennett at his brilliant best.
