    Description

    Step in to the dark world of Roald Dahl's writing for adults in The Complete Short Stories Volume Two

    “It was slowly beginning to dawn upon Henry that nothing is any fun if you can get as much of it as you want. Especially money.”

    Following on chronologically from The Complete Short Stories Volume One, this collection of stories for adults contains 28 dark and sinister tales written between 1954 and 1988. Although an acclaimed children's author, Roald Dahl was also a prolific writer of stories for adults, most with a sinister and disturbing edge to them. With an introduction by Anthony Horowitz, discover the darker side of Dahl, and prepare to be shocked.
