Summary

The unabridged, digital audiobook edition of "My Lady Love, My Dove", a short, sharp, frightening story from Roald Dahl, the master of the shocking tale, read by the great Richard Griffiths.

In "My Lady Love, My Dove", Roald Dahl, one of the world’s favourite authors, tells a sinister story about the darker side of human nature. Here, a game of cards between two couples is the basis for some shocking deceit....

"My Lady Love, My Dove" is taken from the short story collection Someone Like You, which includes 17 other devious and shocking stories, featuring the wife who serves a dish that baffles the police; a curious machine that reveals the horrifying truth about plants; the man waiting to be bitten by the venomous snake asleep on his stomach; 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 listeners shiver today. Richard Griffiths’ film work includes Harry Potter, The History Boys, Hugo, and Withnail and I. His television roles include Henry Crabbe in Pie in the Sky and Swelter in Gormenghast.
