In Dip in the Pool, Roald Dahl tells an unsettling story of human folly. Here, a man acts rashly and life-threateningly to ensure he wins a prize . . .

Dip in the Pool 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.
