Daring deeds... fantastic adventures - Going Solo, the second part of Roald Dahl's autobiography, creates a world as bizarre and unnerving as any you will find in his fiction. 'In Africa he sees a snake-man capture a green mamba and our hero, more or less single-handed, rounds up a convoy of Germans leaving Dar-es-Salaam at the beginning of the war. Then he becomes a fighter pilot, crashing a plane in no man's land in the Western Desert and then doing yeoman service in Hurricanes during the hopeless last days in Greece before he is grounded. A thrill a page and a thoroughly jolly read.' Daily Telegraph 'A nonstop demonstration of expert raconteurship.' The New York Times Book Review
