              By Bennett, Alan

              Faber Stories, a landmark series of individual volumes, presents masters of the short story form at work in a range of genres and styles. Thinking Betty was in the bath Graham was watching a late-night programme on Channel 4 called Footballers with Their Shirts Off when she unexp...ectedly came in on the trail of the hairdryer. 'I didn't know you were interested in football,' said Betty. No one must ever find out that Graham is 'not the marrying sort'. Certainly not his wife, or his mother. As sex, blackmail and fanatical tidiness take over the West Yorkshire parish of Alwoodley, an unlikely caper unfolds.

              The Wind in the Willows (Audio CD / Audio, Unabridged edition)

              By Grahame, Kenneth; Read by Bennett, Alan

              One Spring morning, Mole abandons his spring cleaning and surfaces into the sunlight and warm grass of a great meadow. Rambling busily along the hedgerows he comes all at once to the edge of a river. Mole is entranced. Here on the river bank he meets the Water Rat. Mole stays wit...h the Water Rat in his snug waterside home where the river laps at the sill of the window and here he meets Ratty's friends, Badger who lives in the Wild Wood and the incorrigible Toad of Toad Hall. A timeless tale of waterside Britain that has been loved by generations of children and acclaimed as a classic. The story of Mole, Ratty, Badger and Toad and their escapades, whether messing about on the river or poop-pooping in Toad's shiny new car, cannot fail to enchant every listener. Many of the original cast from Alan Bennett's acclaimed National Theatre production appear in this dramatisation for BBC Radio 4, including Richard Briers as Rat, Adrian Scarborough as Mole and Terence Rigby as Albert with Alan Bennett as the narrator.
