One of the great deceptions of World War II took place in April 1943 when a body wearing a Royal Marines uniform was found off the coast of Fascist Spain. With him was a courier's briefcase containing documents indicating that the Allies were about to invade Europe through Greece—a gambit dubbed "Operation Mincemeat" that the Nazis swallowed whole—while the real Allied objective was Sicily. Officially shrouded in secrecy, the story became the basis for this novel published in 1950 against the wishes of the British government. The film "The Man Who Never Was" was also based on this true incident.; Image is actual copy on offer.

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.
