Many of these stores are now so famous from film and television adaptations that they need no introduction.

Roald Dahl is well known as a master of the macabre and the unexpected in the tradition of Saki, and this volume does not disappoint.

He began his literary career by writing about his own experiences in the RAF during World War II but soon developed this talent in a series of short-story collections.

He is perhaps even more celebrated as an author of children's books, but the best of his short stories represent a claim for him to be numbered among the most remarkable story writers of the 20th century. The present volume includes for the first time all the stories in chronological order as established by Dahl's biographer, Jeremy Treglown, in consultation with the Dahl estate.
