Roald Dahl wrote for adults as well - and these are his best
Roald Dahl let children thrive in a world of whimsy - of "Twits" and "whizzpop" - but neither did he shield them from reality: his stories were always so unsentimental, so macabre in their attitude. Whimsy was a vehicle to teach the ways of the world.  To adults, he presented things simply as they were. Little known, in comparison to Matilda or Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Dahl enjoyed a parallel career penning (largely) macabre and twist-filled short stories for adults.
