From Roald Dahl, the master of the sting in the tail, a newly collected audiobook of his darkest stories, read by Juliet Stevenson, Cillian Murphy, Adrian Scarborough, Tamsin Greig, Stephanie Beacham and Andrew Scott.

'There is a pleasure sure in being mad, which none but madmen know'

Our greatest fear is of losing control - of our lives, but, most of all, of ourselves. In these ten unsettling tales of unexpected madness master storyteller Roald Dahl explores what happens when we let go our sanity.

Collected together for the first time, stories include Edward the Conqueror, Katina, The Sound Machine, An African Story, The Landlady, Pig, The Boy Who Talked with Animals, Dip in the Pool, William and Mary and The Way Up to Heaven.

Dahl understood our deepest secrets, desires and fears and Madness is one of four audiobooks - the rest being Lust, Cruelty and Deception - that explore our hidden selves.
