What to expect

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of The Last Act by Roald Dahl, read by Gillian Anderson.

In The Last Act, Roald Dahl tells a story of human darkness and frailty. Here, a woman's reconnection with an old-flame does not go as expected . . .

The Last Act is taken from the short story collection Switch Bitch, which includes three other black comedies which capture the ins and outs, highs and lows of sex.
