“Don’t know if you guys have noticed, but I’ve been posting music, films, and books I enjoy. Now, I’ve always been fond of Roald Dahl when it comes to that nostalgic bit, but I’ve never really researched this adult fiction. Funny thing is, my sister Linda recommended it to me years ago, but considering the fact that she recommends everything I read…and sometimes I can’t handle the information overload…I put her on the back burner. Now, Sarah from Clothesencounters just mentioned Roald Dahl the other day (considering the fact that I love short stories) and everything clicked. Went to the “Walmart” of bookstores earlier today (Barnes and fucking Noble(s)) and purchased this compilation. I have to say I really like this. I really do. Here’s to romancing myself tonight. Wine included.” – Christine

And would it have been worth it, after all,
Would it have been worth while,
After the sunsets and the dooryards and the sprinkled streets,
After the novels, after the teacups, after the skirts that trail along the floor—
And this, and so much more?—
It is impossible to say just what I mean!
But as if a magic lantern threw the nerves in patterns on a screen:
Would it have been worth while
If one, settling a pillow or throwing off a shawl,
And turning toward the window, should say:
"That is not it at all,
That is not what I meant, at all."
