This is a new paperback edition of Going Solo by Roald Dahl & illustrated by Quentin Blake.
The World's No. 1 Storyteller.
RRP: £6.99
This is the story of Roald Dahl's remarkable life, covering his time working in Africa and his wartime exploits.
Schoolboy Dahl wanted adventure.
In "Going Solo" he recounts his days after leaving Repton, his secondary school, when he joined the Shell Company.
When he complained that Egypt was 'too dusty', he was sent to East Africa, where he had the hair-raising adventures he had longed for - experiences that taught him "how to look after myself in a way that no young person can ever do by staying in civilisation".
When the shadow of war stretched across Africa, he joined the RAF and became a daring fighter pilot across the Mediterranean.
Dahl tells these tales of his youth with that strange blend of innocence and fascination for life's horrors which hallmarks his fiction.
A thrilling read.
