If Stephen King could write with murderous concision he might have come up with The Landlady the story of a boarding house with an oddly talented proprietress and a small but permanentclientele If Clive Barker had a sense of humor he might have written Pig a brutally funny look at cooks and vegetarianism And a more bloodthirsty Jorge Luis Borges might have imagined the fanatical little gambler in Man From the South who does his betting with a hammer nails and a butcher knife But all these stories in this volume were written by Roald Dahl whose genius for the horrific and grotesque is unparalleled and entirely his own Dahl has the mastery of plot and characters possessed by great writers of the past along with a wildness and wryness of his own One of his trademarks is writing beautifully about the ugly even the horrible Los Angeles Times An ingenious imagination a fascination with odd and ordinary detail and a lust for its thorough exploitation are the strengths of Dahl s storytelling New York Times Book Review
