A collection of Roald Dahl's short stories for adults.
Even when we mean to be kind we can sometimes be cruel. We each have a streak of nastiness inside us. In these ten tales of cruelty Roald Dahl explores how and why it is we make others suffer.
Among others, you'll read the story of two young bullies and the boy they torment, the adulterous wife who uncovers her husband's secret, the man with a painting tattooed on his back whose value he doesn't appreciate and the butler and chef who run rings aroudnd their obnoxious employer.
Collected together for the first time, stories include The Great Automatic Grammatizator, Royal Jelly, Mrs Bixby and the Colonel's Coat, The Swan, Poison, Skin, The Princess and the Poacher, Genesis and Catastrophe and Mr Feasey.
