Roald Dahl: Short Story Collections

Lust

Two husbands secretly agree to a night of passion – with each other’s wives; a slighted old man takes an elaborate and chilling revenge on his tormentor; a sculpture comes between a scheming wife and her put-upon husband….

Lust highlights a domestic familiarity always on the edge of something much, much darker. Collected together for the first time, stories include ‘Madame Rosette’, ‘Neck’, ‘Georgy Porgy’, ‘The Visitor’, ‘The Last Act’, ‘The Great Switcheroo’, ‘Bitch’, ‘Ah, Sweet Mystery of Life’, ‘The Ratcatcher’ and ‘Nunc Dimittis’.
