Description

Boy¬†is a funny, insightful and at times grotesque glimpse into the early life of Roald Dahl, one of the world’s favourite authors. We discover his experiences of the English public school system, the idyllic paradise of summer holidays in Norway, the pleasures (and pains) of the sweetshop, and how it is that he avoided being a Boazer.

This is the unadulterated childhood – sad and funny, macabre and delightful – that inspired Britain’s favourite storyteller and also speaks of an age which vanished with the coming of the Second World War.
