A Little Learning (1964) by Evelyn Waugh

Evelyn Waugh has long been one of my favourite authors. Published in 1964, this is the first and only volume of an autobiography Waugh started – a series which was never completed as he died in 1966. 1,185 more words

Had it not been for a chance meeting between author Roald Dahl and Per and his father Peder Vonka towards the end of World War II, we had never heard of Willy Wonka from Roald Dahl’s “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”. 273 more words

Sean Munger reblogged this on www.seanmunger.com and commented:

I absolutely love the ThorNews blog, and this article is a prime example of why. Norway is a small country with a small population, but it's had a big impact on world culture. Who knew that the "real" Willy Wonka was Norwegian? Must we now sing the Oompa Loompa song with a Norwegian accent? Great, fun stuff!
