SMUT – Alan Bennett, 2011

Full of the usual observational humour. Seemingly ordinary people with secret lives.
The first story is of an older woman who explores her burgeoning sexuality via role playing at the local hospital and her cash-strapped lodgers.
The second tells how a man who thinks he can get away with anything, is able to continue in his beliefs because his secrets are known to and manipulated by those around him.

Both contain classic Bennett moments and themes. Perhaps he is just retracing his steps over well-trodden ground but there is still plenty to enjoy on the journey.
