9780140066944: The Best of Roald Dahl

Perfect bedtime stories for those who relish sleepless nights.

Twenty tales to curdle your blood and scorch your soul, chosen from his bestsellers Over to You, Someone Like You, Kiss Kiss and Switch Bitch

Hypnotized from the first sentence, you will remain spellbound as Roald Dahl unravels his fiendish fictions with their satisfying twist-in-the-tale finales, as he leads you through the dangers of gambling for high stakes over wine, the perils of being vegetarian and the macabre consequences of a night-time seduction....

This title includes stories such as: "Madame Rosette", "Man From the South", "The Sound Machine", "Taste", "Dip in the Pool", "Skin", "Edward the Conqueror", "Lamb to the Slaughter", "Galloping Foxley", "The Way up to Heaven", "Parson's Pleasure", "The Landlady", "William and Mary", "Mrs Bixby and the Colonel's Coat", "Royal Jelly", "Georgy Porgy", "Genesis and Catastrophe", "Pig", "The Visitor", and, "Claud's Dog".

From the Inside Flap:

This collection brings together Dahl's finest work, illustrating his genius for the horrific and grotesque which is unparalleled.
"Dahl has the mastery of plot and characters possessed by great writers of the past, along with a wildness and wryness of his own. One of his trademarks is writing beautifully about the ugly, even the horrible."--"Los Angeles Times
"An ingenious imagination, a fascination with odd and ordinary detail, and a lust for its thorough exploitation are the...strengths of Dahl's storytelling."--"New York Times Book Review

About the Author:

Roald Dahl (1916-1990) was born in Llandaff, South Wales, and went to Repton School in England. His parents were Norwegian, so holidays were spent in Norway. As he explains in Boy, he turned down the idea of university in favor of a job that would take him to 'a wonderful faraway place'. In 1933 he joined the Shell Company, which sent him to Mombasa in East Africa. When World War II began in 1939 he became a fighter pilot and in 1942 was made assistant air attaché in Washington, where he started to write short stories. His first major success as a writer for children was in 1964. Thereafter his children's books brought him increasing popularity, and when he died children mourned the world over, particularly in Britain where he had lived for many years.
