First UK edition. Published by Michael Joseph, London in 1960. The book is in very good condition, with some minor tears to the dust jacket. This first edition is preceded by the Knopf (US edition) which was published in 1959.
A collection of short stories. Most of the stories are presented as typical narratives, albeit with imaginative characters. The horror of each story is built around implication, and many horrific endings, involving death or unpleasant situations, can only be inferred, since nothing is directly stated. "The Champion of the World" is a condensed version of the story that would become Dahl's 1975 children's book, Danny the Champion of the World.
Kiss Kiss by Roald Dahl
