Title: The Lady in the Van
Author: Alan Bennett
Page Count/Review Word Count: 104
This one’s interesting because it’s a memoir that Bennett wrote about a woman who literally lived in a broken-down van in his garden, and it basically conveys her personality perfectly. The problem is that she wasn’t very likeable.
Still, she’s definitely a character, which is why the book was turned into a movie with Maggie Smith. Sure, she used the “N-word”, called herself a proud Tory and sang the praises of Enoch Powell, but she’s dead now so eh.
