Publisher's Summary

The unabridged, digital audiobook edition of 'The Great Switcheroo', a short, sharp story from Roald Dahl, the master of the twist in the tale, read by the actor Shane Rimmer.

In 'The Great Switcheroo', Roald Dahl, one of the world’s favourite authors, tells a subversive, saucy story of lust and desire. Here, two husbands secretly agree to a night of passion - with each other’s wives....

'The Great Switcheroo' is taken from the short story collection Switch Bitch, which includes three other black comedies which capture the ins and outs, highs and lows of sex. 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.

Shane Rimmer’s film work includes: Dark Shadows, Batman Begins, Out of Africa, and Dr Strangelove. His television work includes: Dr Who, The Persuaders, Space 1999 and the voice of Scott Tracy in Thunderbirds.

Only one way to sum this up:

The combined genius of one of the greatest writers ever and a brilliant voice actor (who many will remember as the voice behind a jet aircraft pilot for a certain International Rescue organisation) leave me with only one word to sum up this audiobook: F.A.B.!
