In The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar, seven tales of the bizarre and unexpected are told by the grand master of the short story, Roald Dahl. Enter a brilliant, sinister and wholly unpredictable world. Here you will find the suggestion of other-worldly goings on in a dark story about a swan and a boy; the surprising tale of a wealthy young wastrel who suddenly develops a remarkable new ability; and meet the hitchhiker whose light-fingers save the day. 'An unforgettable read, don't miss it' Sunday Times Roald Dahl, the brilliant and worldwide acclaimed author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, Matilda, and many more classics for children, also wrote scores of short stories for adults. These delightfully disturbing tales have often been filmed and were most recently the inspiration for the West End play, Roald Dahl's Twisted Tales by Jeremy Dyson. Roald Dahl's stories continue to make readers shiver today.

The first book to penetrate the secret and cut-throat world of chocolate. After ten years of research, Washington Post reporter Joel Glenn Brenner takes us inside a world as mysterious as Willy Wonka's chocolate factory, where industrial spies jockey for inside information as paranoid executives fight an all-out war for market share. Forrest Mars was one of the most private and successful entrepreneurs in America. An autocrat, with brilliant - if sometimes unconventional - management strategies, he built one of the world's most innovative companies - a $10 billion a year empire, shrouded in secrecy. The day after he died of natural causes a Mars spokesperson refused even to admit that the founder had worked for the firm. Milton Hershey was a dreamer who wanted to create not just a company but an industrial paradise. After making an immense fortune his company is now controlled by a charitable trust whose profits fund the wealthiest orphanage in the world. Never before has so much been revealed about the chocolate industry. This authoritative and eye-opening account is the best type of business narrative - a revealing, engrossing and unforgettable read. *An engrossing portrait of two of the world's wealthiest companies, both founded by men dedicated to their very different, though equally eccentric, personal visions. A fascinating insight into what began as a fraternity of family-owned businesses and has now grown into a multi-billion dollar industry dominated by cut-throat wheeler-dealing. Joel Glenn Brenner's Mars cover story for Washington Post Magazine won three prizes.

(Book Jacket Status: Jacketed) The only hardcover edition of Roald Dahl's stories for adults, the "Collected Stories" amply showcases his singular gifts as a fabulist and a born storyteller. Later known for his immortal children's books, including "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, "and "The BFG, "Dahl""also had a genius for adult short fiction, which he wrote throughout his life. Whether fictionalizing his dramatic exploits as a Royal Air Force pilot during World War II or concocting the ingeniously plotted fables that were dramatized on television as "Tales of the Unexpected," Dahl was brilliant at provoking in his readers the overwhelming desire to know what happens next--and at satisfying that desire in ways that feel both surprising and inevitable. Filled with devilish plot twists, his tales display a tantalizing blend of macabre humor and the absurdly grotesque. From "The Landlady," about an unusual boardinghouse that features a small but very permanent clientele, to "Pig," a brutally funny look at vegetarianism, to "Man from the South," in which a fanatical gambler does his betting with hammer, nails, and a butcher's knife, Dahl's creations amuse and shock us in equal measure, gleefully reminding us of what might lurk beneath the surface of the ordinary.
