FIRST EDITION [1974] ALFRED A. KNOPF

Nice copy with some general wear to dust jacket and a few tiny edge tears. Book has a slight lean to it, as well as some light tanning / foxing to paper inside of cover. 


The Visitor' and 'Bitch' are extracts from the diaries of the notorious Oswald Hendryks Cornelius, hedonist beyond compare. Uncle Oswald's exploits are as extraordinary as they are scandalous, as these two tales of sex and intrigue confirm in vivid and hilarious detail. The delicious thrill of sexual expectation -- and its sometimes maddening effects -- are explored in 'The Great Switcheroo' and 'The Last Act'; here the power of desire is a double-edged sword, both pleasurable and potentially catastrophic. Lust, triumph, the galling deflation of defeat: Roald Dahl captures them all in these superbly taut black comedies of human weakness and unexpected reversal.
