read a ton of roald dahl during the trip down and back to LA. i love that guy! i was flipping through his short stories “tales of the unexpected”, they kill me. speaking of which i remember reading “a lamb for the slaughter” (or whatever the name) sometime back in grade school. i didn’t realize it was him. his work reminds me of dr. suess or shel silverstein, in so far as they’ve all become well-known for kids books but they’ve done “adult books” or books with adult themes. i remember shel’s “different dances” when jay showed it to me a few years back.
