About the Author
After establishing himself as a writer for adults, Roald Dahl began writing children’s stories in 1960 while living in England with his family. His first stories were written as entertainment for his own children, to whom many of his books are dedicated.
Roald Dahl is now considered one of the most beloved storytellers of our time. Although he passed away in 1990, his popularity continues to increase as his fantastic novels, including James and the Giant Peach, Matilda, The BFG, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, delight an ever-growing legion of fans.

Before I read Roald Dahl's autobiographical books, "Boy," and "Going Solo," I thought that he wrote only children's books. What a pleasant surprise !
He was a very talented writer who really knew how to tell a fascinating story, with all the wonderful details that keep a reader interested. I only wish he had written a complete autobiography.

His comment on the "management " during his flying career is very telling. As someone who lived thro" the war and experienced as a young civilian the horror of being bombed I am still surprised that we won. (Only the input from the USA really made the difference)!
It tells of his life as an employee in Africa, his experiences with deadly snakes and suchlike but it's his near death trauma when piloting a fighter plane in the early days of WW2. How he survived a massive crash landing in the middle of a desert and later his exploits as a Spitfire pilot battling against all the odds is quite amazing.
Buy this book! It's such a wonderful and true account of this chap's life before becoming one of the world's best authors.
Just a must read for anyone.
