Sudden Traveller (Hardback)Sarah Hall (author)
- In stock online
Comprising seven short stories that range from Turkey to Cumbria, Sudden Traveller hums with transformative energy and sly magic. Making existential connections like no other writer, Hall’s prose sings with possibility and grace.
The seven stories of Sudden Traveller immerse us anew in one of the most distinctive literary imaginations.
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. A woman fitted with life-changing technology returns to the site of her strongest memories; a man repatriated in the near east hears the name of an old love called and must unpack history's suitcase; and from the new world-waves of female anger and resistance, a mythical creature evolves.
Radical, charged with a transformative creative power, each of these stories opens channels in the human mind and spirit, as Sarah Hall once more invites the reader to stand at the very edge of our possible selves.
