'No one writes stories the way Hall does and quite possibly no one ever will. Astonishing, miraculous, a gift.' Daisy Johnson

'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.
