Roald Dahl's first short story collection is published and he returns to the UK
In January 1946, Roald Dahl's first short story collection, Over To You, is published by Reynal & Hitchcock. The collection features 10 of Roald's earliest short stories, all using flying themes.
In February, Roald returns to the UK after four years in Washington and New York City.
In June of that year Roald, together with his mother and sister Asta, move to Grange Farm in Great Missenden, a small Buckinghamshire village between London and Oxford. Roald converts a cottage in the grounds into a writing studio.
Great Missenden would remain Roald's UK base for the rest of his life. It is now home to The Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre.
