Penguin Audiobooks presents Roald Dahl's "Switch Bitch", a collection of darkly humourous short stories from one of Britain's best-loved authors. It is complete, unabridged and brought to life by an all-star cast including Richard E. Grant and Derek Jacobi. Topping and tailing this collection are "The Visitor and Bitch", stories featuring Dahl's notorious hedonist Oswald Hendryks Cornelius (or plain old Uncle Oswald) whose exploits are frequently as extraordinary as they are scandalous. In the middle, meanwhile, are "The Great Switcheroo" and "The Last Act", two stories exploring a darker side of desire and pleasure. In the black comedies of "Switch Bitch" Roald Dahl brilliantly captures the ins and outs, highs and lows of sex. Further Dahl short story volumes publishing in September 2012: "Over To You", "Someone Like You", and "Kiss, Kiss" recorded with high-profile readers including Derek Jacobi, Cillian Murphy, Richard E Grant, Julian Rhind-Tutt, Juliet Stevenson, Richard Griffiths, Rik Mayall with many more to be announced.
Roald Dahl, the best-loved of children's writers, was born in 1916 in Wales of Norwegian parents. He was educated in England before starting work for the Shell Oil Company in Africa, and began writing after a 'monumental bash on the head' sustained as an RAF fighter pilot during the Second World War. He worked in a tiny hut in the apple orchard of his house in Buckinghamshire until his death in 1990 at the age of 74. Roald Dahl's many books continue to be read by children the world over who delight in the magic of his marvellous storytelling. His books continue to be bestsellers, despite his death in 1990, and total sales are 100 million worldwide!
