Best Twist Endings: Roald Dahl is a household name in children’s stories. If you haven’t read his adult fiction, though, you’re missing out. Skin and Other Stories resumes the witty, weird happenings and characters from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda and Dahl’s other books and artfully mixes in the macabre darkness of murder, madness and deeply hilarious deaths. You’ll find no cheap tricks in any of these short stories: instead, profound, shocking twists that will delight your guilty pleasure.
