Roald Dahl was one of the most successful children's book writers of all time. The author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and James and the Giant Peach, he was also a deeply troubled man about whom opinion is still divided. War hero, spy, connoisseur, philanthropist, family man who had to confront an appalling succession of tragedies, Dahl was also a fantasist, a bully, and a self-publicizing troublemaker who attracted accusations of racism and misogyny.
