book: tales of the unexpected

Tales of the Unexpected by Roald Dahl.

A series of well-written short stories for grown-ups, each with a twist at the end. There is much to be learned about the craft of short-story writing just by observing the patterns that Dahl goes through here. My favourite was early on: the wine-tasting story.
