In Bitch, Roald Dahl, one of the world's favourite authors, tells a funny, fruity story about one of his favourite characters, adventurer and seducer Oswald Hendryks Cornelius. Here, Uncle Oswald gets involved with an aphrodisiac that drives men wild with passion . . .

Roald Dahl's stories continue to make readers shiver today.
