Miss Shepherd
Biography
Adapted for the screen by the author from his celebrated memoir, Alan Bennett's 'The Lady in the Van' is directed by long-standing collaborator Nicholas Hytner. The film tells the true story of the relationship between Alan Bennett and the singular Miss Shepherd, a woman of uncertain origins who 'temporarily' parked her van in Bennett's London driveway and proceeded to live there for 15 years. This book contains a foreword by Nicholas Hytner, a substantial introduction with diary entries by Alan Bennett, the original memoir and the screenplay. It also includes numerous illustrations by David Gentleman, who sketched on set throughout filming, and a colour plate-section including behind-the-scenes photographs and stills from the film.

Read this after watching the brilliant film and it’s a great, short read with the same humour.
