An African Story (A Roald Dahl Short Story)


Penguin presents the audiobook edition of An African Story by Roald Dahl, read by Cillian Murphy.

In An African Story, Roald Dahl tells us the twisted tale of the dog killer, the missing milk, the old man and the snake.

An African Story 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.
