About the Author:

Roald Dahl, the best-loved of children's writers, was born in Wales of Norwegian parents. After school in England he went to work for Shell in Africa. He began to write after "a monumental bash on the head", sustained as an RAF pilot in World War II. Roald Dahl died in 1990.

From AudioFile:

In this rollicking romp through his childhood, Roald Dahl's listeners glimpse some of the imaginative inspirations for his delightful stories. We spend idyllic summers in his mother's native Norway, grow weary at the boredom of his English public schools, wince at the canings administered to 7-year-old boys by 40-year-old psychopaths, even find a real live chocolate factory that gives free samples to young boys. Yet we relish every minute. The author covers all in the rosy hue of nostalgia, while Sachs fills it with twitches, grunts, and tipsy 10-year-olds. His familiar voice playfully marshals before our eyes the saints and demons from Dahl's memory as only an accomplished actor can, capturing with them all the drama, suspense, and energy of the written text.
