Love from Boy
Available in Stock
Roald Dahl wrote his first letter to his mother, Sofie Magdalene, when he was nine, and the correspondence continued into his adult life. This carefully chosen selection, accompanied by photographs and biographical information, charts his wartime service in the Royal Air Force, his time in Hollywood, and his budding literary career. The collection offers touching evidence of the bond between mother and son, and shows the development of Dahl’s fantastical imagination – and sadistic sense of humour. Off-mint and felt-tip mark on lower trimmed edge.
