Roald Dahl is revered for books like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and James and the Giant Peach. But what many grown-up readers don't know is that Dahl applied his uproariously wicked sensibility to material for those of us above the age of consent. So leave it to QPB to bring together, in an exclusive 3-in-1 edition, this altogether different Dahl, but one with all the delicious wit you remember. For short stories that manage to be funny, sexy, and macabre all at once, here are Kiss Kiss and Switch Bitch, two collections by "the absolute master of the twist-in-the-tale," says the Observer. My Uncle Oswald is a hilarious novel that follows the erotic exploits of "the greatest fornicator of all time," Oswald Hendryks Cornelius, first introduced in Switch Bitch. Lust, triumph, the galling deflation of defeat: Dahl captures them all in these superbly taut black comedies of human weakness and unexpected reversal.

Kiss My Tiara challenges The Rules and backlash books like In Defense of Modesty. Designed to help women 18-35 catch a life, not a husband, it's funny and politically irreverent, with chapters such as "Nevermind a Penis, We'll Take a Paycheck" and "How to Deal with Lunatics, Perverts and Right-wing Republicans." Like The Rules, it's based on wisdom the author received from her grandmother--except her grandmother was a feisty, gin-drinking feminist. Gilman is indignant at the mindlessness of aerobics classes, refuses to subscribe to the belief that thin thighs are more important than brains and chutzpah, and believes that if you have trouble asking for dessert you'll never be able to ask for a raise. Sprinkled with her grandmother's affirmative aphorisms ("If God didn't want us to play with ourselves, she would have made our arms shorter"), the book covers the gamut of a woman's world--relationships, money, self-esteem, sexual harassment in the workplace, and the guilt of ordering french fries. Gilman's is a sage, insightful, and witty voice in a confusing time that will make women laugh while teaching them to feel entitled, confident,

This quote by John Kemp is taken from the first page of Kiss of a Dolphin and sums up the essence of the book: ... "Tom Tuohy's book does what I have been working to accomplish my entire life. Not only is it a pleasure to read, but reminds us all that kids can face so many disabling conditions on their way to growing up -- that poverty is no less immobilizing than conditions brought about by illness or accident. In a single work, it embodies so many of the ideals that the civil rights and advocacy movements of all types have been striving for throughout the past fifty years. It is a story about courage and fear. Many people fear those with disabilities: perhaps it is self-consciousness and a desire to not say or do the wrong thing. Not only do the people at Dreams for Kids appear to have no worries about doing the wrong thing, they seem to have adopted the "can do" attitude so necessary to positive change. And, they give everyone a place to start: the book encourages readers to look at the person in the wheelchair or with a cane, to get past any fear or self-consciousness, and start by saying "Hi." I love this book. I love it because Tom and his friends understand, at the deepest possible level, that everyone is disabled, at some time, in some way. It is clear the barriers Dreams for Kids remove have less to do with adaptive equipment than with the opportunity they give people to see themselves in a different way. And, it is equally clear that these opportunities are at least as valuable for the volunteers, as they are for the recipients."
