Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Someone Like You by Roald Dahl, read by Julian Rhind-Tutt.
In Man from the South, Roald Dahl tells a sinister story about the darker side of human nature. Here, a man takes part in a very unusual bet, one with appalling consequences . . .
Man from the South 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.
