The unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of "Mrs Bixby and the Colonel’s Coat", a brilliant gem of a short story from Roald Dahl, the master of the sting in the tail. Read by the actress Stephanie Beacham. In "Mrs Bixby and the Colonel’s Coat", Roald Dahl, one of the world’s favourite authors, tells a sinister story about the darker side of human nature. Here, a wife pawns her lover’s parting gift with unexpected consequences . . ."Mrs Bixby and the Colonel’s Coat" is taken from the short story collection Kiss Kiss, which includes ten other devious and shocking stories, featuring the husband and wife who hit upon a novel way to feed their new baby; the priceless piece of furniture that is the subject of a deceitful bargain; a wronged woman taking revenge on her dead husband, 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. Stephanie Beacham’s Television work includes: Trollied, Mount Pleasant, Coronation Street, Sister Kate, Beverley Hills 90210, Bad Girls, The Colbys, Dynasty and Tenko.
