Parental advisory: not suitable for adults - Books - Times Online

G. P. Taylor identifes himself with Roald Dahl and defines reviewers as "adults who would like to write books but can�t"...

As adult fiction increasingly moves towards the banal demands of large chains selling the literary equivalent of soma, so it is the realm of the children�s author to deal with the more weighty matters of life, death and the reason for living. I was shocked when a recent survey declared that 60 per cent of my readers were adults with an even male-female split.
