9780140089172: Boy: Tales of Childhood

'Throughout my young days at school and just afterwards a number of things happened to me that I have never forgotten ....' Boy is a funny, insightful and at times grotesque glimpse into the early life of Roald Dahl, one of the world's favourite authors. We discover his experiences of the English public school system, the idyllic paradise of summer holidays in Norway, the pleasures (and pains) of the sweetshop, and how it is that he avoided being a Boazer. This is the unadulterated childhood - sad and funny, macabre and delightful - that inspired our most-loved children's writer.
