Summary
Funny, irreverent and sometimes sad, here is the story of the early life of one of the world's best-loved authors. From the evocation of an enchanted boyhood spent in Wales and Norway to his unhappy experiences at an English public school, these sparkling memoirs are filled with wit, high spirits and more than a touch of the macabre. "A shimmering fabric of his yesterdays, the magic and the hurt" --Observer. "Brilliantly coloured, sometimes grotesque and sometimes magical" --Sunday Times. "As frightening and funny as his fiction" --The New York Times Book Review. "Superbly written ... a glimpse of a brilliant eccentric" --New Statesman.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Dahl's autobiographical stories are a mixture of fun and shivering terror. The sequel, Going Solo, describes his experiences as a young man in East Africa and as a World War II fighter pilot. (D 1 85)"
