Sudden Traveller

By Sarah Hall

£8.99

‘Sudden Traveller’ is Sarah Hall’s third story collection. Featuring her signature themes of identity, eroticism, and existential quest, these new stories travel far afield in location and ambition. From Turkish forests to rain-drenched Cumbrian villages, Hall’s characters walk, drive, dream, and fly, trying to reconcile themselves with their journeys through life, death, and love. Science fiction meets folktale and philosophy meets mortality.

‘The queen of dark short fiction.’ Guardian

‘Astonishing, miraculous, a gift.’ Daisy Johnson

‘The best short story writer in Britain.’ Spectator

In Turkish forests or rain-drenched Cumbrian villages, characters walk, drive, dream and fly, trying to reconcile themselves with their journey through life and death. Radical, charged with a transformative, elemental power, each of these stories invites us to stand at the very edge of our possible selves.

Includes the story ‘The Grotesques’, winner of the BBC Short Story Award, 2020.
