One of the most widely read and influential writers of our generation ( The Times)
Dahl is too good a storyteller to become predictable ( Daily Telegraph)
From the publication of James and the Giant Peach and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in the 1960s to his death in 1990, Roald Dahl became the most successful children’s author in the world. Nearly twenty years later, a fresh generation of children seek out his work with instinctive fanaticism. His creations endure - through Hollywood movies, theatre adaptations and musical works, but still most potently of all through the pure magic of his writing upon the page.

Summary: 'The Visitor' and 'Bitch' are extracts from the diaries of the notorious Oswald Hendryks Cornelius, hedonist beyond compare. Uncle Oswald's exploits are as extraordinary as they are scandalous, as these two tales of sex and intrigue confirm in vivid and hilarious detail. The delicious thrill of sexual expectation -- and its sometimes maddening effects -- are explored in 'The Great Switcheroo' and 'The Last Act'; here the power of desire is a double-edged sword, both pleasurable and potentially catastrophic. Lust, triumph, the galling deflation of defeat: Roald Dahl captures them all in these superbly taut black comedies of human weakness and unexpected reversal. Book jacket.
