Publisher's Summary

The unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of 'William and Mary', a brilliant gem of a short story from Roald Dahl, the master of the sting in the tail. Read by Juliet Stevenson and Adrian Scarborough. In 'William and Mary', Roald Dahl, one of the world's favourite authors, tells a sinister story about the darker side of human nature. Here, a wronged woman takes revenge on her dead husband.... 'William and Mary' is taken from the short story collection Kiss Kiss, which includes ten other devious and shocking stories, featuring the wife who pawns the mink coat from her lover with unexpected results; the priceless piece of furniture that is the subject of a deceitful bargain; a husband and wife who hit upon a novel way to feed their baby; and others.

This story is also available as a Penguin ebook. 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. Juliet Stevenson's television work includes: White Heat, The Hour, Place of Execution, and Nicholas Nickleby. Her film work includes: Infamous, When Did You Last See Your Father?, Mona Lisa Smile, Bend It Like Beckham and Truly Madly Deeply. Adrian Scarborough's television work includes: Upstairs, Downstairs, Gavin and Stacey, Cranford, and Psychoville. His film work includes: The King's Speech, Gosford Park, The Madness of King George and Vera Drake.
