I grew up reading Roald Dahl's books as a wee nipper (and have been on a Dahl kick again of late in my late thirties), so was ecstatic when I came across a copy of Sophie Dahl's book, Playing with the Grown-ups recently. I really liked how this was written - it was unusual and quirky and quite unlike anything I've ever read before. It was like a bunch of snapshots or moments from someone's life rather than an actual narrative, yet you could still follow what was happening.

Playing with the Grown-ups grows beyond charming child's play to a clear-eyed compassion for the world's limitless store of tragic comedy. Sophie Dahl grew up in England. In 2003 she and the illustrator Anne Morris published a small book, The Man with the Dancing Eyes. She lives in the country in England.
She and Kitty were lying on the sofa watching Camelot. I think you should have a birthday party, a belated one. Christ knows, you and I could use a party. et, just Dylan and Honor. what if no one comes, and where will everyone fit?'. Those are just petty logistics - we'll make everyone fit. It'll be cosy and intimate. We must make the best of the space we have
The Independent Books. Dahl is at her best with this ballsy tragicomedy, which is genuine and touching in parts. She disappoints when she tries to be deep
The Independent Books. Kitty is a young girl growing up in a "somewhat" unconventional family: doting grandparents, two half-siblings and her mother, Marina, "a beauty, a painter and a weeper". It could be classic misery lit – mother ups sticks with "Swami-ji"; mother dumps bookish daughter in vile boarding school; mother returns and has shedloads of sex and drugs with mortified daughter's friends – apart from that Dahl doesn't seem to do misery. She disappoints when she tries to be deep. And in the present-day chapters, Kitty's supportive husband is too, too sick-making. Sophie Dahl writes with a keen eye, a warm heart and wonderful lyricism about a coming-of-age that's quite unlike any other. How did you like the book?
Playing With The Grown-Ups. Kitty's mother, Marina, is both utterly beguiling and terrifyingly embarrassing, and more often than not Kitty can only gaze on her antics with awe and toe-curling trepidation. But as Kitty grows up it becomes clear that perhaps Marina isn't the most exemplary of parents, and that sometimes a girl might have to put herself first.

How can Sophie Dahl be the granddaughter of the genius Roald Dahl, a certified supermodel . Her first book, a fairy tale for adults called The Man With the Dancing Eyes, only whet my appetite for more and Playing With the Grown-Ups does not disappoint.
How can Sophie Dahl be the granddaughter of the genius Roald Dahl, a certified supermodel AND an amazing author? Well, it turns out that she's all three and you'll want to hate her for it but you can't. I read this book while sitting on my porch in the first sun of spring, smoking cigarettes and avoiding getting to work.
