‘Through the powerfully formative lens of Wales, the essays in this highly original and imaginative collection demonstrate the extent to which Dahl’s later development, as both writer and person, was shaped by his Welsh upbringing.’
-David Rudd, Professor of Children's Literature, University of Roehampton

‘An intriguing and readable collection of essays that shines remarkable light into Roald Dahl’s complex and unexpected Welsh hinterland.’
-Donald Sturrock, Dahl’s official biographer
