STORYTELLER: The Life of Roald Dahl

DONALD STURROCK    Book Number: 81910    Product format: Paperback

An award-winning biography which sympathetically portrays the life and work of a difficult, complex author who is adored by millions of children. Sturrock is able to get behind Dahl's fantasies and exaggerations and just as Dahl did, reveals the human in the monstrous. What shines is Dahl's vitality, courage and passion for life whose life was just about as far from boring as is possible. One of the greatest storytellers of all time, Roald Dahl pushed children's literature into unchartered territory. The man behind the stories however remains an enigma. A single-minded adventurer, an eternal child, and his public persona often controversial, to his readers Dahl was always a hero. His figures like Willy Wonka and the BFG are immortal literary creations. Here are his terrifying experiences as a fighter pilot, the anguish caused by the death of his seven year old daughter, his work for Military Intelligence at the end of the war and more. With reference to hundreds of recently discovered letters. 655pp in paperback with eight pages of photos.
