By The Book: Bibliography - Roald Dahl

Best known for his incredibly well-loved children's books - Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, James and the Giant Peach, just to name a few - Roald Dahl also lived a rich, interesting life. He was a fighter pilot, intelligence agent/spy, and screenwriter, and he also wrote some very dark, unexpected adult short stories. In this episode of Bibliography, we try to go through as much of his life and writing as we can, before talking about the many film adaptations of his work in Footnotes.
