Here are four stories by the inimitable master of seduction and suspense - each with a razor-sharp sting in the tail... In 'The Visitor' and 'Bitch' two extracts from the notorious diaries of Oswald Hendryks Cornelius are published. Hedonist extraordinaire, Uncle Oswald knows how to turn an exploit into an extravaganza. The deliciousness of sexual expectation - and the dangerous potency of its effects - are explored in 'The Great Switcheroo' and 'The Last Act': here, the power of desire is a double-edged sword. Lust, triumph, the galling deflation of defeat: Roald Dahl captures it all in these outrageously wicked comedies.
'The subject of all four stories is sex and rarely has that subject been milked for so many laughs... Switch Bitch certainly does the soul a power of good.'
