MEDIA REVIEWS
The absolute master of the twist-in-the-tale * Observer *
Roald Dahl is one of the few writers I know whose world can accurately be described as addictive. Through his tales runs a vein of macabre malevolence, the more effective because it springs from slight, almost inconsequential everyday things. The result is a black humour of the most sophisticated kind * Irish Times *
Fantastic as Grimm, heartless as Saki * Guardian *
