I bought this particular edition many years ago, as a school student. Sadly, time took its toll on that particular copy. After recently watching Matilda on TV, I was reminded
of Dahl's literary and creative genius and decided to re-acquire this volume. The book itself, is an Everyman library edition, very well bound and printed and a pleasure to read. This has ALL of Dahl's work for adults. A copy worth adding to one's collection, whether you are a Dahl fan or simply a lover of great literature well presented. Five stars all the way.

This is the first complete collection of Roald Dahl's (adult) short stories. They have been arranged in chronological order by his biographer, Jeremy Treglown, who was also Dahl's biographer:

Roald Dahl: A Life: A Biography

As with all Everyman collection books, the books is a pleasure to read (in terms of the quality of the paper, etc.).

Dahl's short stories are hilariously funny and it is a shame he is not better known for them - he is overshadowed by his children's work. I can highly recommend this book.

A most excellent tome of beautifull and interesting stories. Although Dahl has an unique style, his short stories are reminiscent of those of Ray Bradbury. I cannot give this collection anything other than the highest of accolades!

The book was despatched quickly, well packed. I can make no further comment as it was a present for a friend and I hope he was pleased! Thanks.

Weather you like Dahl or not is a matter of preferences. I love to read a story now and then. This is technically a quality edition: well printed and bound.

Top collection of stories! Really surprised to read his 'adult' work and bought this copy for a friend.
