Sudden Traveller

Sudden Traveller Sarah Hall

  • 'No one writes stories the way Hall does and quite possibly no one ever will. Astonishing, miraculous, a gift.' Daisy Johnson
  • Winner of the Bbc National Short Story Award
  • Winner of an O.Henry Prize for Short Fiction

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.

  • 'Hall's stories are extraordinary. Magical. I never know where the next one will take me, but I know it will be unexpected, memorable, and built from language that crackles with energy.' Chris Power

Praise for Madame Zero

  • 'So fearsomely excellent it almost hurt to read. Truly the best collection I’ve come across in a decade.' Wells Tower
  • 'These stories leave the reader unsettled, thrilled, and changed ... Marvellous.' Jon McGregor
  • 'I can't praise it highly enough.' David Mitchell
  • 'Astonishing: humane yet otherworldly, disturbing, sexy and strange. The woman is a genius.' Jessie Burton
  • 'Hall’s stories are vixen-shaped: urban and rural, feral and natural, female and stinky, beautiful and tough ... Exceptional, compelling, frightening and authentic.' Guardian
  • 'Stunning ... Each of these brilliant stories is a leap into a dark, mysterious void that ultimately reveals glittering terrors therein.' Independent
  • 'An edgy, sensuous, and immediate writer of striking power and grace.' Sunday Times
