Summary
Roald Dahl is loved around the world for his iconic children's books and darkly humorous stories. But he was also a prolific letter writer. From the age of nine, under the watchful eye of his headmaster, until his death, Dahl's life was filled with correspondence. These letters - to his mother, his young fans and to celebrity friends, littered with jokes and madcap observations, sometimes serious, sometimes tender, and frequently outrageous - shine fresh light onto Dahl's complex personality. They tell of the delights of childhood, the excitements of flying as a World War II fighter pilot, and of meeting presidents and movie stars, and offer practical advice about how to survive at school, make friends or defy enemies. With exclusive access to the Roald Dahl Estate's archives, his official biographer Donald Sturrock reveals the man as few before have seen him: in his own words
