Alan Bennett's second story. This time, set in the 1970s, in classic Bennett country, Yorkshire. 'On the many occasions Midgley had killed his father, death had always come easily. He died promptly, painlessly and without a struggle. Looking back, Midgley could see that even in these imagined deaths he had failed his father. It was not like him to die like that. Nor did he.' Midgley is determined to deny his father a last...

occasion to be disappointed in him. He will do the right thing and sit by his father's bed-side in Intensive Care until he dies.

But, even when he is unconscious, his father manages to make Midgley's life a misery.

This is another classic story by Alan Bennett, with brilliant portraits of social hypocrisy and stifling family relationships.
