"At the end of Mr Sturrock’s satisfying and sparky tale, the reader has an overwhelming desire to rush off and read the first of Dahl’s books he can lay his hands on." "—The Economist"
"Donald Sturrock’s "Storyteller" ... [gives] us a sprawling entertainment packed with anecdote and incident.... an engaging tale with satisfying episodes of glamour, intrigue, failure and renewal." —William Georgiades, "The Wall Street Journal"
“A major literary biography...."Storyteller" is so packed with intimate details, sharply intelligent commentary and surprising revelations...that it should be read immediately by anyone interested in Dahl, the ins and outs of modern publishing or the art of biography. I can't sing its praises enough.” —Michael Dirda, " The Washington Post"
“An exhaustive, yet exuberant portrait . . . Sturrock unravels the Dahl myth.” —Susannah Cahalan, "New York Post"
"A no-stone-unturned examination of the man who gave us "Matilda" and "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory"." — "TimeOut New York
“Diabolically readable! Donald Sturrock—a goodhearted Charlie with the keys to the factory well in hand—makes lucky ticketholders of us all, revealing from deep within this exotic, guarded, often painful life the conjuring triumphs and dark tragedies of the 20th century's most wonderfully wicked storyteller.” —David Michaelis, author of "Schulz and Peanuts"
“Sturrock’s superb biography . . . is a hugely readable portrait that examines vividly and sympathetically the life and work of a difficult, complex author who was adored by millions of children, loathed by many adults, and was possibly a genius.” —Graham Lord, "Daily Telegraph" (UK)
"A balanced and juicy treatment . . . running through Dahl's years spying for the Brits and bedding a slew of Americans as well as the tensions, setbacks, and depressive jags that gave his work its texture." —"New York" magazine, "The Twenty; Our most anticipated fiction and nonfiction of fall"
“The person I met when I met Roald Dahl comes through vividly on the pages of "Storyteller". Dahl told me that he was generally disappointed in what people wrote about him, but I believe he would have appreciated Donald Sturrock’s beautifully written book.” —Charlotte Chandler, author of "I Know Where I'm Going"
A major literary biography packed with intimate details, sharply intelligent commentary and surprising revelations. I can't sing its praises enough. Michael Dirda, Best Nonfiction of 2010, The Washington Post"
Now in paperback—Donald Sturrock’s Storyteller is “a major literary biography...packed with intimate details, sharply intelligent commentary, and surprising revelations” (The Washington Post) of one of the greatest writers in the twentieth century, whose work still delights millions around the world today.
A single-minded adventurer and an eternal child who gave us the iconic Willy Wonka and Matilda Wormwood, Roald Dahl lived a life filled with incident, drama and adventure: from his harrowing experiences as an RAF fighter pilot and his work in British intelligence, to his many romances and turbulent marriage to the actress Patricia Neal, to the mental anguish caused by the death of his young daughter Olivia. InStoryteller, the first authorized biography of Dahl, Donald Sturrock—granted unprecedented access to the Dahl estate’s archives—draws on personal correspondence, journals and interviews with family members and famous friends to deliver a masterful, witty and incisive look at one of the greatest authors and eccentric characters of the modern age, whose work still delights millions around the world today.
