Switch Bitch

Switch Bitch by Roald Dahl

Introduced by Anne Brichto of Addyman Books, Hay-on-Wye 

The dark side of Dahl can be surprisingly colourful. Everyone of my age will remember being transfixed by the television series of Tales of the Unexpected and the sound of the theme tune and vision of the opening dancing lady have never left my head.


This is a Bookseller’s Breakfast Dahl-a-long post to highlight his adult works which continue to thrill. His short stories give us the lighter side of murder and bad marriages. His cynicism is balanced with humour and the tension is a joy. To me he was almost as good at this sort of humour as Graham Greene.

I am eating a dark smoothie made from black berries, black currants and other summer fruits decorated with chia seeds, goji berries and frozen red and black currants.
