Sarah Hall - Sudden Traveller

Sarah Hall - Sudden Traveller

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.

Details

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.

Sarah Hall is the author of five novels, three short story collections and co-editor of the short story anthology Sex and Death (Faber). Born and raised in Cumbria, she has won multiple prominent writing awards including the Betty Trask Award, John Llewellyn Rhys Prize, the Portico Prize, the Edge Hill short story prize and the BBC National Short Story Award. Her work is critically acclaimed and has been translated into more than a dozen languages. She has tutored for the Faber Academy, The Guardian, the Arvon Foundation, and has taught creative writing in a variety of establishments in the UK and abroad. She currently lives in Norwich.

We're delighted to welcome Sarah back to Grasmere, where we've been fans of her work since her debut novel Haweswater (2003). The novel is a long-standing bestseller at Sam Read's.

Sarah will be reading from Sudden Traveller and then be in conversation with Drs. Polly Atkin and Will Smith.
