This beautifully hand-bound edition of extracts from Alan Bennett’s 2019 diary covers (among other things), a comparison of the film The Favourite with his own play The Madness of George III, reminiscences about wartime food, being doorstepped by Morrissey (again), falling off his bicycle and facing up to encroaching arthritis and the devastation of open heart surgery . . . all in the looming shadow of Brexit and his distaste for the Windsor knot.
