The New Yorker has an interesting piece which corresponds to the release of Tim Burton's adaptation of Roald Dahl's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Writer Margaret Talbot visited the deceased author's home (his widow opens the home for the public once a year) and was witness to a visual example of how Dahl's books affected both young and old. In short: the kids loved Dahl's home, while the adults found some things a bit too off-putting to ignore. The same could be said for his books, which adults often criticized for being too morbid, but which children consumed like Gobstoppers.
