They say that you can never go home. The memories of your childhood always pale in comparison to reality. That’s true in a lot of cases, but not with Roald Dahl. He is as fascinating a story teller as you remember—and then some.
This book of short stories is incredibly diverse. There are shorter stories and longer stories, true stories and fiction. The thread that ties them all together is Dahl’s compelling style of story-telling that’s evident even in the first story he wrote (published here).
For a boy who was told he was useless in English composition (also recounted in this collection), he did quite well for himself!
