Publishers Description: Roald Dahl is loved around the world for his iconic childrens 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, Dahls life was filled with correspondence.For much of his life, Dahl wrote weekly letters to his mother. These letters - littered with jokes and madcap observations, sometimes serious, sometimes tender, and frequently outrageous - shine fresh light onto Dahls complex personality. They tell of the delights of childhood, the dramas of boarding school friendship and betrayal, the excitements of flying as a World War II fighter pilot, and the thrill of meeting presidents and movie stars during his time as a diplomat in Washington.Marking the 100th anniversary of Dahls birth, these letters capture the beginnings of the fantastical imagination that created some of the worlds best-loved childrens fiction. With exclusive access to the Roald Dahl Estates archives, Dahls official biographer Donald Sturrock reveals the man as few before have seen him: in his own words.Praise for StorytellerA truly magnificent biography . . . a masterly account A N WilsonSuperb . . . hugely readable Sunday Telegraph
