Description

PERFECT for fans of Roald Dahl.

Think you know Dahl? Think again. There’s still a whole world of Dahl to discover in a newly collected book of his deliciously dark tales for adults . . .

‘There is a pleasure sure in being mad, which none but madmen know

Our greatest fear is of losing control – of our lives, but, most of all, of ourselves. In these ten unsettling tales of unexpected madness master storyteller Roald Dahl explores what happens when we let go our sanity.

Among other stories, you’ll meet the husband with a jealous fixation on the family cat, the landlady who wants her guests to stay forever, the man whose taste for pork leads him astray and the wife with a pathological fear of being late.

Roald Dahl reveals even more about the darker side of human nature in seven other centenary editions: Cruelty, Lust, Deception, Innocence, Trickery, War and Fear.
