Born OTD in 1916, British novelist, short story writer, poet, screenwriter, and fighter pilot, Roald Dahl. From Roald Dahl, the master of the sting in the tail, a newly collected book of his darkest stories. ‘There is a pleasure sure in being mad, which none but madmen know’ Our greatest fear is of losing control – of our lives, but, most of all, of ourselves. In these ten unsettling tales of unexpected madness master storyteller Roald Dahl explores what happens when we let go our sanity.

Among other stories, you’ll meet the husband with a jealous fixation on the family cat, the landlady who wants her guests to stay forever, the man whose taste for pork leads him astray and the wife with a pathological fear of being late. Dahl understood our deepest secrets, desires and fears and Madness is one of four books – the rest being Lust, Cruelty and Deception – that explore our hidden selves.
