The complete collection of monologues from the master of observation.
Alan Bennett sealed his reputation as the master of observation with this series of twelve groundbreaking monologues, originally filmed for BBC Television. At once darkly comic, tragically poignant and wonderfully uplifting, Talking Heads is widely regarded as a modern classic. This new edition, which contains the complete collection of Talking Heads, as well as his earlier monologue, A Woman of No Importance, is a celebration of Alan Bennett’s finest work.

"Talking Heads places Alan Bennett in the highest tier of English dramatic writers" * New York Times * "His finest achievement - indeed masterpiece wouldn't be too strong a word" * The Daily Telegraph * "Bennett's genius is his ability to satirize humanely. [His] prose is like stained glass: if you stare at it, you see things you missed" * New York Times Book Review * "It's hardly a revelation to say that Alan Bennett has proved himself a master of the modern dramatic monologue... One of the finest dramatic achievements of the past few decades." * Scotsman *
