Dahl short story collection
we II -written adult fantasies
Switch Bitch by Roald Dahl. Random House
Books, New York, N.Y. $5.95.
Author Roald Dahl is most famous for his
children's books, such as "Charlie and the'
Chocolate Factory"-well-written fantasies that
have gained a solid reputation as good reading for
In his collection of short stories, Switch Bitch,
Dahl presents the reader with a set of adult
fantasies. One can easily imagine that, writing
those stories, Dahl kept his balance as a writer.
His stories, filled with stylish, mild, erotic
madness, are as attractive to mature readers as his
chocolate factory work is to children.
It would be spoiling the fun to reveal the plots
of the four stories in this collection. Yes, they
are about sex, but they are also about people, -frustrations
and times past and present. One
concerns a cologne (which bears the name of the
second word in the book title) that has the
ridiculous effect of making an animal out of any
man who approaches a woman who wears the
cologne. What happens to this invention along
the way provides delightful reading.
It's refreshing to read a book that teases both
the intellect and the more elemental senses, yet
doesn't leave one feeling that the book is junky.
Dahl is funny and observant, and gives enough
detail to make his stories believable. Yet he
writes in a simple manner, letting the far-fetched
fantasies provide the sparks of his stories.
'Earth Below' buried Hendrix
Review by Steve Cogley
Robin Trower has another album out, For
Trower, former lead guitarist of Procol
Harum, could be called Jimi Hendrix Jr. To say
Trower's style is only influenced by Hendrix is
wrong; it's dominated by Jimi.
The first time I heard Trower's second album,
Bridge Of Sighs, I thought some more good
Hendrix material was upon us. The technique
was ther , the style, everything right down to
how th bassist plunked and the drummer
drummed. The only obvious difference were the
vocals. However, I do wish Trower would expand
on some of Hendrix' talents and techniques,
rather than just copying them.
For Earth Below is good material, but
typically so. Trower gets in his licks, singer James
Dewar handles the vocals and bass well and Billy
Lordan keeps things going on the drums.
The album has four fine cuts; the rest are only
above average. "Shame The Devil" starts things
off nicely and, while no song really jumps out,
"Alethea" comes closest. "Gonna Be More
Suspicious" and the title cut include some fine
There are four good reasons to buy this
album. If you like guitar, this is your album. If
you don't have a Trower album this would be a
good start. If you're a Hendrix fan this is, of
course, the closest thing to Jimi that we have.
And finally, the album, is, quite simply,
musically sound and well-produced.
