Only This (A Roald Dahl Short Story)


Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Only This by Roald Dahl, read by Sophie Okonedo.

In Only This, Roald Dahl tells of a mother restlessly waiting for her bomber crewman son to return form a raid . . .

Only This 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.
