It is a wonderful book

It is a wonderful book

The artistic director of the Roald Dahl Foundation manages a balanced and juicy treatment of his idol, running through Dahl’s years spying for the Brits and
bedding a slew of Americans as well as the tensions, setbacks, and depressive jags that gave his work its texture.
