The second part of Roald Dahl's autobiography creates a world as bizarre and unnerving as any one will find in his fiction. An evocation of his wartime exploits, it tells of African safaris and deadly snakes; of fighter planes and air battles with the enemy during World War II. This is the sequel to "Boy".
