Product description

Review


"Solomon's book shows how deeply medicine and illness permeated Dahl's life, explaining much about his character, his achievements and even (perhaps) his creativity." - Tom Shippey, Times Literary Supplement


"Intriguing and expected" - Donald Sturrock, author of Storyteller: The Life of Roald Dahl


"Unusual and delightful...Solomon brings a personal and highly readable touch, weaving together medical science and biographical detail." - Brian Clegg, author of The Universe Inside You


About the Author

Tom Solomon is a doctor, world-leading researcher, and an award-winning science communicator. Nowadays, as a Professor of Neurological Science and Director of the Institute of Infection and Global Health at the University of Liverpool, he confronts global health challenges such as Ebola and Zika virus, but in 1990 he was a junior doctor tasked with looking after the nation's favourite children's author, Roald Dahl. He tweets @RunningMadProf.
