Roald Dahl, a biography, DAHL] TREGLOWN, Jeremy
2 7107 DAHL] TREGLOWN, Jeremy Roald Dahl, a biography
Softcover; Trade PB Harcourt Brace & Company: San Diego; c1994, 1995; First Paperback Edition 322 pages B&W Photographs: Very Good 
No spine or cover creases, light edgewear and rubbing, a few smudges to page edges.; 'Misogynist, anti-Semite, misanthrope--Roald Dahl was reputed to be these as well as war hero, devoted father, and philanthropist.' This unauthorized biography is "an honest yet deferential biography... Born in England to Norwegian parents, Dahl (1916-90) was a difficult and opinionated man whose life was riddled with tragedy... Although Dahl achieved success through his novels, stories, and screenplays, he found his niche in writing for children. His tales were sometimes criticized as too gruesome, yet they remain hugely popular with children because they unflinchingly confront childhood demons and fears. Treglown draws extensively from interviews with Dahl's family and a wealth of correspondence. An excellent portrait of one of modern literature's most creative minds."; "A highly compelling portrait of an author whose life was nearly as colorful and unpredictable as his fiction."-NY Times. Image is actual copy on offer.
