wishful wednesday

Halooo… maaf ya, Wishful Wednesday hari ini sedikit terlambat. Tapiii.. tadi pagi saya sudah posting Giveaway untuk menyambut ulang tahun saya, yeaaay… jangan lupa ikutan ya 🙂 Siapa tau kamu menang, dan WW mu bisa terkabul 🙂

Minggu ini saya lagi membaca salah satu koleksi cerpen nya Roald Dahl, The Umbrella Man. Meski seru (seperti biasa), tapi banyak cerpen-cerpen dalam buku ini yang ternyata sudah saya baca di kumpulan cerpen lainnya. Jadi, ternyata Roald Dahl menerbitkan banyak kumcer, yang sepertinya isinya mirip-mirip satu sama lain.

Saya jadi browsing apa saja kumcer Roald Dahl, dan jadi tergoda mengumpulkannya juga XD Terutama sih, yang isinya beda dari yang lain. Misalnya, yang ini:

switch bitchSwitch Bitch –> sepertinya lebih dewasa ceritanya 😀

In Switch Bitch four tales of seduction and suspense are told by the grand master of the short story, Roald Dahl.

Topping and tailing this collection are The Visitor and Bitch, stories featuring Dahl’s notorious hedonist Oswald Hendryks Cornelius (or plain old Uncle Oswald) whose exploits are frequently as extraordinary as they are scandalous. In the middle, meanwhile, are The Great Switcheroo and The Last Act, two stories exploring a darker side of desire and pleasure.

In the black comedies of Switch Bitch Roald Dahl brilliantly captures the ins and outs, highs and lows of sex.

 

Ah, Sweet Mystery of Life –> temanya tentang cerita di pedesaan

Collects stories on a theme of country matters that feature such characters as Claud, Rummins and Bert. This book contains seven stories, including Ah, Sweet Mystery of Life. It also features line drawings.

complete roald dahlComplete Tales of The Unexpected –> Ini biar sekalian puas dan nggak usah beli yang lain-lain lagi 😀

Roald Dahl is one of the most widely read and influential writers of his generation, famous for his bestselling books for children which mingle humour with enjoyable chills. In his adult fiction, an even darker and deliciously twisted side emerges. This complete Folio omnibus edition, first published in 1991, contains all the stories from his world-famous collections – Kiss Kiss, Over to You, Switch Bitch and Someone Like You – as well as eight further ‘Tales of the Unexpected’. In these stories we meet the Oxford Don who decides to ensure his brain’s immortality; the bee keeper who discovers the nourishing – and terrifying – power of royal jelly when he feeds it to his infant daughter; and how an innocent leg of lamb can turn a family dinner into a horror scene…

(Typeset at The Folio Society in Monotype Ehrhardt with Gill Sans. Printed on St Paul’s Wove paper at Grafos S.A. Barcelona, and bound by them in a snakeskin-graned material, printed and blocked with a design by the artist.)
