Roald Dahl is one of the world's most popular writers, equally at home writing for both children and adults. In this, the second of two volumes collecting all his published adult short stories in chronological order, we experience Dahl's dark and powerful imagination in full flight in twenty-eight stories written between 1954 and 1988 (including eight tales which are not available in any other printed edition). Here, in 'Parson's Pleasure', a piece of furniture is the subject of a deceitful bargain; in 'William and Mary', a wife revenges herself on her dead husband; and in 'Royal Jelly' some new parents find an unusual and unsettling way to give their newborn its start in life. Whether you're young or old, once you've stepped into the brilliant, troubling world of Roald Dahl, you'll never be the same again. 'Dahl finds the child in the adult and the adult in the child and, with a little smile, he sticks the knife in both.' Anthony Horowitz, from his introduction Look out for Volume One, introduced by Charlie Higson. www.roalddahl.com facebook.com/roalddahl
