Synopsis

Roald Dahl: Yesterday Was Beautiful (Audiobook Extract) read by Juliet Stevenson by Penguin Books UK

The unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Yesterday was Beautiful, a short, gripping story of life in wartime from Roald Dahl, the master of the shocking tale. Read by the actress Juliet Stevenson.

In Yesterday was Beautiful, Roald Dahl, one of the world's favourite authors, tells of a bailed out pilot in Greece looking for assistance from the natives . . .

Yesterday was Beautiful is taken from the short story collection Over to You, which includes nine other dramatic and terrifying tales of life as a wartime fighter pilot, and is drawn from Dahl's own experiences during the Second World War.

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, Truly Madly Deeply.
