“Dear Mom, I’m gonna have a nice weather here.We play football every day here.Beds don’t have sourcesThis is how Roald Dahl’s first letter of nine years to his mother, Sofie-Madeleine, begins, under the watchful eye of her boarding school principal.For most of his life, Roald Dahl’s life, would be to continue writing weekly letters to his mother, chronicling his adventures, frustrations and opinions, from the pleasures of childhood to the excitement of aviation during World War II, fighter pilot and the pleasure of meeting great politicians and movie stars during his time as a diplomat and spy in the state of Washington.And, unbeknownst to Roald, his mother lovingly guarded her every single one of them.Sofie was, in many respects, Roald’s first readerShe encouraged him to tell stories and nurtured his desire to make, exaggerate and entertain.Reading these letters, you can see Roald’s practice of his craft, develop the black and fantastic sense of humor of the imagination, which later produce such timeless tales as The BFG, Mathilde, Fantastic Mr Fox and The Witches.Boy Love Letters are filled with jokes and madcap observations; sometimes serious, sometimes tender, and often scandalous.To listen to a son, letters to his mother is to be Roald Dahl’s witness, passing from a boy to a man, and finally become a writer.
