The unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of "Skin", a short, sharp, frightening story from Roald Dahl, the master of the shocking tale. Read by the actress Tamsin Greig. In "Skin", Roald Dahl, one of the world's favourite authors, tells a sinister story about the darker side of human nature. Here, a very unusual painting proves to be more valuable than anyone, especially its owner, could ever have predicted . . ."Skin" is taken from the short story collection Someone Like You, which includes seventeen other devious and shocking stories, featuring the wife who serves a dish that baffles the police; a curious machine that reveals the horrifying truth about plants; the man waiting to be bitten by the venomous snake asleep on his stomach; 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. Tamsin Greig's television work include: Episodes, White Heat, Friday Night Dinner, The Diary of Anne Frank, Love Soup, Green Wing, Black Books. Her film work includes: Tamara Drewe, and her theatre work includes: Jumpy, Much Ado about Nothing: RSC.
