"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
