Alan Bennett Gives Papers to Bodleian Library

Alan Bennett is to give a wealth of written work from nearly 50 years as an author and playwright to the Bodleian Library at Oxford University.

Notes, drafts and scripts for all of his stage and TV plays were among the collection, the library said. There are also manuscripts for his autobiographies and short stories, plus letters and a number of unpublished diaries dating back to 1974.
