She is running and becoming smaller, running and becoming smaller, running in the light of the reddening sun, the red of her hair and her coat falling, the red of her fur and her body loosening.
Running.
Holding behind her a sudden, brazen object, white-tipped. Her yellow scarf trails in the briar. All vestiges shed.

Sarah Hall is an exquisite chronicler of landscapes - rural, industrial, psychological - and these haunting stories reveal a writer at the peak of her powers. Rich in the mythic symbolism of wilderness and wasteland, these tales blur the natural and urban, mundane and surreal, human and animal.

Written in Hall's lyrical prose, this uncannily disturbing collection glitters with poetic and erotic imagery.

Marked by a fascination with the intimacy of nature - and the nature of intimacy - Madame Zero is a stunning new collection from an author twice nominated for the Booker Prize.

'Hall's stories are vixen-shaped: urban and rural, feral and natural, female and stinky, beautiful and tough.' - The Guardian

'Hall is an edgy, sensuous and immediate writer of striking power and grace.' - The Sunday Times
