Would you risk losing a finger for a chance to win a nice car? Roald Dahl's story 'Man from the South' is a suspenseful tale about gambling that will make you cringe. We'll summarize and analyze this short narrative. Setting the Scene What would you be willing to bet for the chance to win some prized item? Roald Dahl explores this idea in 'Man from the South,' originally published in 1948. It's narrated by an unnamed person who sits at a poolside table one evening at a hotel in Jamaica, enjoying a beer, a cigarette, and the evening sun. We don't know who this person is, where they're from, why or where they are in Jamaica, or even their gender. The narrator watches some young men and women in the pool, whom he calls girls and boys. He thinks the women are English and from the hotel, but guesses the men are American naval cadets from the Navy ship he saw in the harbor that morning. A small older man in a white suit and Panama hat appears and, with a heavy accent, asks to sit next to the narrator. 'Excuse pleess, but may I sit here?' The older man comments on the enjoyable Jamaican evenings and on how loud Americans are. The narrator decides he must be from somewhere in South America. One of the presumed Americans gets out of the pool accompanied by one of the presumed English women. He asks if they can join the seated fellows and offers each of them a cigarette and a light. Summary of the Story The South American doesn't think the lighter will work in the windy weather, and when the American insists it always does, the older man proposes a bet. 'Shall we not make a little bet on whether your lighter lights?' If the American can light his lighter ten times in a row, the South American says he'll give him his new green Cadillac. The boy wants to know what happens if he loses. The man says, 'I never ask you, my friend, to bet something you cannot afford. You understand? . . . perhaps, de little finger of your left hand.' Despite the disapproval of the narrator and the English woman, the American eventually agrees, and the four go up to the older man's room in the hotel. The narrator notices a woman's dressing gown or robe on the bed. The South American makes everyone martinis and pays a hotel maid to bring him a hammer, nails, and a chopping knife, which she does. He hammers two nails into a table and expertly secures the American's left hand between them with string. The narrator thinks, 'Anyone would think the son of a bitch had done this before.' The narrator counts each successful light. He gets to 'Seven!' and notes that the lighter is obviously a good one, and describes how the thumb is key to working it. The suspense is heightened. Just after 'Eight!' an older woman rushes in, seizes the South American, whom she addresses as Carlos, and shakes him violently while berating him in what sounds like Spanish. She apologizes to the others and explains that Carlos is a 'menace' and that he 'has taken altogether forty-seven fingers from different people, and he has lost eleven cars.' She's brought him to Jamaica to help him avoid institutionalization. She reveals that the Cadillac and everything Carlos once owned are hers because she won them from him. The narrator sees that her hand 'had only one finger on it, and a thumb.' Analysis: Themes 'Man from the South' is part of a short story collection called Tales of the Unexpected, whose themes include risk-taking, cruelty, revenge, and (perhaps unsurprisingly) high-stakes betting. This narrative includes all of the above themes except for revenge, and it certainly features suspense and the unexpected. Most readers are expecting the American to either win or lose the bet, not be rescued from the risk.

The short film is based on a serial killer in an unknown location in the late 70's. Our whole lives we wait for that moment. The moment which usually never comes, but sometimes it does.

Get you started to listen to the full audiobook Man from the South (A Roald Dahl Short Story), free at our library. The unabridged, audiobook edition of Man from the South, a short, sharp, chilling story from Roald Dahl, the master of the shocking tale. Read by the actor Stephen Mangan. In Man from the South, Roald Dahl, one of the world's favourite authors, tells a sinister story about the darker side of human nature. Here, a man takes part in a very unusual bet, one with appalling consequences . . . Man from the South is taken from the short story collection Someone Like You, which includes seventeen other devious and shocking stories, featuring the wife who serves a dish that baffles the police; a curious machine that reveals the horrifying truth about plants; the man waiting to be bitten by the venomous snake asleep on his stomach; and others. This story is also available as a Penguin ebook. Roald Dahl, the brilliant and worldwide acclaimed author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, Matilda, and many more classics for children, also wrote scores of short stories for adults. These delightfully disturbing tales have often been filmed and were most recently the inspiration for the West End play, Roald Dahl's Twisted Tales by Jeremy Dyson. Roald Dahl's stories continue to make readers shiver today. Stephen Mangan's television work includes: Episodes, Dirk Gently, Green Wing and The Comic Strip Presents The Hunt for Tony Blair. His film work includes: Rush, Beyond the Pole and Confetti.
