Parsons Pleasure

Parson’s Pleasure

Roald Dahl

Finely detailed story of an antiques dealer who poses as a country parson to gain access to homes that may contain valuable furniture. When he finds a Chippendale Commode (chest-of-drawers) in a farmhouse occupied by three rubes, he thinks he’s got it made. Though ultimately predictable, Dahl’s closing observation is a dilly.
