Description
The creator of outlandish characters and stories in such children's classics as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, and Matilda, Roald Dahl himself lived a life filled with incident, drama, and adventure. From his harrowing experiences as an RAF fighter pilot and his work in wartime intelligence to his many romances and his turbulent marriage with actress Patricia Neal—and the anguish caused by the death of his young daughter Olivia—this biography depicts Dahl's brilliant yet tempestuous ascent toward notoriety, his liking for controversy, his abrasive manner, and his fascination for the gruesome and the macabre. In naming Storyteller a Washington Post Best Nonfiction Book of 2010, Michael Dirda called it "a major literary biography ... packed with intimate details, sharply intelligent commentary and surprising revelations. I can't sing its praises enough."
