Just when I thought Roald Dahl couldn't get any cooler, I discover that he wrote all of his novels for children in a little tiny shack tucked into a corner the garden behind his house. He never permitted anyone besides himself to enter and he never swept the floor.
Roald Dahl. Even more awesome than I previously thought.
You can take a virtual tour of the writing hut at the Roald Dahl History and Story Centre.
