The Herald is running a rather annoying article about efforts to catalogue Roald Dahl’s papers before the opening of his new museum in the UK next year. Oh, I think the archive is a good idea, but I have serious misgivings about the inevitable whitewashing of history that will occur. Towards the end of his life Dahl increasingly relied on editors to shape his best-selling plots, and as the article seems to gloss over this in favor of the “great genius of literature” angle, I’m sure these guys will go unrecognized yet again.
