Description

Product Description

If Stephen King could write with murderous concision, he might have come up with "The Landlady," the story of a boarding house with an oddly talented proprietress and a small but permanent clientele. If Clive Barker had a sense of humor, he might have written "Pig," a brutally funny look at cooks and vegetarianism. And a more bloodthirsty Jorge Luis Borges might have imagined the fanatical little gambler in "Man From the South," who does his betting with a hammer, nails, and a butcher knife.

But all these stories in this volume were written by Roald Dahl, whose genius for the horrific and grotesque is unparalleled and entirely his own.

"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

From the Inside Flap

This collection brings together Dahl''s finest work, illustrating his genius for the horrific and grotesque which is unparalleled.

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.

This is the one book that I take with me when I travel because every story feels new each time I read it. My copy is tattered with love, and I give out a new copy with careful consideration. His stories are not for everyone...they''re dark but without the lighter patina of his children''s novels (e.g. BFG, The Witches). Every story has a twist...rarely do I know what is going to happen in the first few pages. Highly recommend!

I''ve had three copies of this book. I buy it, I loan it out, I don''t get it back. There seems to be a pattern there which I am missing. Of all the Dahl short story collections I think this one is the best. Going to go buy my 4th copy and not show anyone.

I described this collection to friends by saying "Roald Dahl is the British Flannery O''Connor." If you like dark, funny (sometimes truly twisted) short stories where, in surprise endings, those who scheme and plot always get theirs, you will truly enjoy this book.

I had only read Mr. Dahl''s children''s books, and was pleasantly surprised at the depth of his adult works. This collection was first recommended to me by my best friend, and I had to buy my own copy after reading hers!

Absolutely thrilling! I''m getting the urge to read more and more Dahl''s unconventional stories, throughly packed with quirky human habits, though it''s sometimes causing a bit of a nervous heart, a tickling in the brain and a rather shallow breathing.... Only unpleasant little fact of this book in particular is the very soft cover, which feels like it won''t last long. (schlabberig...)
