Bitch: One Tale from the Short Story Collection Switch Bitch (A Penguin Special)
"Dahl is too good a storyteller to become predictable." —The Daily Telegraph
“Bitch” is the last story in Switch Bitch, a collection of four tales of seduction and suspense told by the grand master of the short story, Roald Dahl. It features Dahl's notorious hedonist Oswald Hendryks Cornelius (or plain old Uncle Oswald), whose exploits are frequently as extraordinary as they are scandalous. In “Bitch” as well as in the other black comedies of Switch Bitch, Roald Dahl brilliantly captures the ins and outs, highs and lows of sex.
Roald Dahl, the brilliant and worldwide acclaimed author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, Matilda, and many more classics for children, also wrote scores of short stories for adults. These delightfully disturbing tales have often been filmed and were the inspiration for the West End play Roald Dahl's Twisted Tales by Jeremy Dyson. Roald Dahl's stories continue to make readers shiver today.
