Roald Dahl’s Hot Granddaughter Authors Book

April 22nd, 2008 at 8:37 pm


Sophie Dahl, granddaughter of Roald Dahl, has written a novel called Playing With the Grown-ups.

Sophie used to be a model, is an editor at Men’s Vogue, and is now a novelist.

Plus she’s smoking hot. So watch out Marisha Pessl and Zadie Smith.

Speaking of which, of Zadie Smith’s White Teeth, Sophie says, “First novels are not meant to be that good.”

They’re not? Well maybe you should have set your standards just a little bit higher, Ms. Dahl. Zadie sure did, going so far as refusing to award a literary prize for lack of worthy material.


According to its publisher, “Playing with the Grown-ups is an enchanting novel about growing up in a loving, utterly chaotic household; it is also hilarious, heartbreaking, and scandalous. The offbeat and often comic adventures of the free-spirited heroines—Marina and Kitty alike—will remind readers of Breakfast at Tiffany’s. With her magnificent talent for storytelling and creating unconventional characters, Sophie Dahl ably carries on the literary legacy of her grandfather, the beloved children’s book author, Roald Dahl.”

They don’t seem to mention anything about how hot Sophie is. Which is probably why no one reads books and instead sees movies, watches cable news, worships pop stars, and obsesses about celebrities. Give us what we want!

I’m sure her words are pretty too. But they could at least hook us with her looks. Put her on the cover maybe? Everything else is sold that way. Or are we happy with a failing, archaic industry?

I know, I know, I know…literature is the last bastion of dignity and artistic merit with fibbing authors and classy tell-alls.

But isn’t familial heritage just as irrelevant as physical appearance? So out with the grandfather and in with the long, bare legs.

  1. So not really on the same topic as your post, but I found this today and I just can’t resist sharing. Mrs. Agathe’s dishwasher quit working so she called a repairman. Since she had to go to work the next day, she told him, “I’ll leave the key under the mat. Fix the dishwasher, leave the bill on the counter, and I’ll mail you the check. Oh, and by the way…don’t worry about my Doberman. He won’t bother you. But, whatever you do, do NOT under ANY circumstances talk to my parrot!” When the repairman arrived at Mrs. Agathe’s apartment the next day, he discovered the biggest and meanest looking Doberman he had ever seen. But just as she had said, the dog simply laid there on the carpet, watching the repairman go about his business. However, the whole time the parrot drove him nuts with his incessant cursing, yelling and name-calling. Finally the repairman couldn’t contain himself any longer and yelled, “Shut up, you stupid ugly bird!” To which the parrot replied, “Get him, Spike!”

  2. I like this information given and it has given me some sort of desire to have success for some reason, so keep up the good work!
