'I have only written about those moments that I consider memorable' - Roald Dahl

Roald Dahl, the best-loved of children's writers, was born in Wales of Norwegian parents. After school in England he went to work for Shell in Africa. He began to write after "a monumental bash on the head", sustained as an RAF pilot in World War II. Roald Dahl died in 1990.

Quentin Blake is one of the best-known and best-loved children's illustrators and it's impossible now to think of Roald Dahl's writings without imagining Quentin Blake's illustrations.

Review:

His account of life as a fighter pilot in the Western Desert and in Greece has the thrilling intensity and the occasional grotesqueness of his fiction ( Sunday Times )

Very nearly as grotesque as his fiction. The same compulsive blend of wide-eyed innocence and fascination with danger and horror ( Evening Standard )

A non-stop demonstration of expert raconteurship ( The New York Times Book Review )

Book Description:

The second instalment about the incredible life of Roald Dahl. An astonishing autobiography brought to life by one of England's leading actors, Ian Holm. It will capture the attention and the imagination of adults and children alike.
