The Clothes They Stood Up In

The Clothes They Stood Up In - Alan Bennett Loved "Smut" so much, grabbed this from the library to read next. Short novels suit my currently short attention span.

Finished reading this in a day I didn't have much time to read, so there you go. There's no one like Alan Bennett. I wish he weren't so successful as a playwright, so he'd be forced to write lots more lovely, occasionally naughty novellas like this one. Also, it's lovely to read a male author who apparently has lots of tender, humorous sympathy for middle-aged women.
