Roald Dahl

Roald Dahl (1916-1990) was a British author and poet of Norwegian descent.

Dahl notably wrote stories for both children and adults, though in both cases his works often contain humorous, fantastical or absurd elements. His most famous children's book is Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (1964), whereas some of his popular works for adult include short stories in the fields of crime fiction or horror, such as "Lamb to the Slaughter" (1953) or "Man from the South" (1948).
