Matthew Dennison – Teller of the Unexpected : The Life of Roald Dahl

Never was a man more cursed than Roald Dahl – nor was there a person more able to turn that misfortune to good. He watched his sister die as a child, and one of his own daughters also died in tragic circumstances – yet his vibrant and essential stories have enriched the lives of millions across the world.

In his new biography of the great children’s writer, Dennison challenges the received story of Dahl’s life to reveal a different, more nuanced and complex man. If you read him as a child, or read his books to your children or grandchildren now, or if your contact is through his Tales of the Unexpected, this will enrich your understanding and appreciation of what he achieved.
