The Visitor (A Roald Dahl Short Story)

What to expect

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of The Visitor by Roald Dahl, read by Derek Jacobi and Richard E Grant.

In The Visitor, Roald Dahl tells a funny, fruity story about one of his favourite characters, adventurer and seducer Oswald Hendryks Cornelius. Here, Uncle Oswald gets more than he bargained for in Arabia . . .

The Visitor is taken from the short story collection Switch Bitch, which includes three other black comedies which capture the ins and outs, highs and lows of sex (including another Uncle Oswald story, Bitch).

Critics Review

    Daily Telegraph
  • One of the most widely read and influential writers of our generation
