9780141189659: Over to You: Ten Stories of Flyers and Flying (Penguin Modern Classics)

During the Second World War Roald Dahl served in the RAF and suffered horrific injuries in an air crash in the Libyan desert. Drawing on his own experience as a fighter pilot, Dahl crafted these ten spine-tingling stories: of air battles in the sky; of the nightmare of being shot down; of the infectious madness of conflict; and of the nervy jollity of the Mess and Ops room. Dahl brilliantly conveys the bizarre reality of a wartime pilot's daily existence, where death is a constant companion and life is lived from one heartbeat to the next.

Review:

Roald Dahl is one of the few writers I know whose work can accurately be described as addictive ( Irish Times )

About the Author:

With the publication of James and the Giant Peach and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in the 1960s, Roald Dahl became the most successful children's author in the world. Nearly twenty years after his death in 1990, 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.

Alex James is the bass player in Blur. His first book Bit of a Blur was published in 2007. A regular columnist and writer, Alex contributes to the Independent and the Observer. He lives on a farm in Oxfordshire where he produces organic cheese.
